Close shave

Welcome to CLOSE SHAVE, the online repository of images for Kent Waddington Photography’s ongoing photographic shave project. You are invited to witness the bizarre and sometimes exhibitionistic displays of models in the act of shaving.

View over 35 co-conspirators from Canada, United States and Europe as they lather up and scrape off their stubble.

About Close SHAVE

I have very vivid recollections of myself as a kid, sitting on the clothes hamper in the bathroom watching my Father go through the grown-up ritual of shaving. Each morning he would soak his badger-hair brush to soften the bristles before whipping the two dollops of squeezable shave cream, which he had oozed out onto his face, into a frothy white lather.
