James O Jenkins: Before and After – Rob Harries (Esher Rugby Club)

Work / Photography

From haircuts to weird English pastimes James O Jenkins has it covered

“Nice hair!” is a classic phrase. “Have you had a haircut?” is even better. The difference in appearance after a mere haircut is pretty marvellous. James Jenkins, documenter of mundane weirdness, has taken a charming series of before-and-after shots of people at the barbers, competing in sports matches and even skydiving. His other projects include a fascinating insight into the Queen’s guard and a hilarious series of images documenting strange, British, ritualistic sporting events. See you at the Whittlesea Straw Bear Man Festival!
