I met Silvia Prada when I was curating a fashion, film and photo exhibition in Santiago de Compostela. Her book: The Modern Hair: A Styling Chart features a series of stylized portraits that highlight male hairstyles juxtaposed with geometric drawings. What is interesting is the focus on the barbershop and how subtle nuances and cues help define the male persona, their identity and how they are represented within the parameters of visual and popular culture. Prada captures the typecasting and idealized character building that has been ingrained in our minds through media, pop culture and iconography.
