While a woman is often judged to be superficial and deeply interested in her outer appearance, a man is considered being rather free from these matters. With this work, I wish to present an inside and intimate look on how a male takes care of himself. I am paying attention especially to hairs of a man and the ways he is preparing them. Often it is all about the looks, even if not all the hair that a man is worried about is visible to others. Preparing the hair, shaving and trimming can be part of normal daily routines. Nevertheless, hair-care is not only substantially important but also stressing and painful, in being pure vanity.
My photographic gaze is serious and worried but at the same time very much ironic and self-critical. How weird and vain it all sounds and looks! Still a man keeps on visually trimming himself. It is simply funny.
