Day 2 – The Miniclick Photobook Advent Calendar, 2014

Christoph Soeder’s “Clear Cut” is just that. A topographical study of men getting their haircuts in a small barbers in Newport South Wales.

We were first made aware of Christoph’s book during a visit to Brighton he made with Newport University to talk to a number of practitioners (including Jim and Jack from Miniclick) about their work. This project really stuck in our minds and the book just adds to it even more. The book is small in size but boasts a great bold design. The concertina presentation of the book plays on the repetitive nature of Soeder’s project. The cover of the book is cut from the same cloth used by the barber to cover his sitter’s shoulders, which is a crucial touch. The way this book impresses is by doing the simple things very, very well.


A limited number of the self-published book is sold via Christoph’s website for £35.
