Throughout India, street barbers can be found almost anywhere: on roadsides, under bridges and in small shacks. Armed with a pair of scissors, a straight blade and a small mirror or shard of glass, most barbers earn between 200 to 250 rupees a day (around $3.50 to $4.50 CAD). Whether it be a moustache trim, a close shave or a fully shaven head for a funeral, the skills are usually passed down through generations as an art form. This man above is sitting by the sacred Ganges river in Varanasi, waiting for his first customer of the day.
