Nicolaus Schmidt

Astor Place • Broadway • New York. A Universe of Hairdressers

All of New York concentrated into one cellar: the Astor Place barber shop. More than fifty hairdresser and barbers work here – immigrants from every corner of the world – in a vibrant space surrounded by mirrors, barbers’ chairs from several decades, cellar pipes and barbers’ work stations that look like art installations. Founded in 1947 by a Sicilian family, the shop is the kind of business that is being forced out of Manhattan due to high rents.

Nicolaus Schmidt presents this incomparable space “up close and personal” but also in a cinematographic style in the 155 pages of photographs. The celebrity hairdresser Udo Walz has contributed a text about how the project has inspired him.
