Simon Weller

I traveled to Ethiopia in college and I don’t think there is anything more addicting than the color palettes and pattern combinations that exist in Africa. Africans have a deep appreciation for the application of bright colors to everything in their lives. Photographer Simon Weller recently documented a unique cultural phenomena  which he included in his new book South African Township Barbers & Salons. I love the whimsical paintings and fading tin paired with the faces. Make sure to visit his website so you can see the full collection and his other photo essays.
