The Barbershop Diaries: Jason “Jerk” Lim

This past spring I embarked on a group project with my classmates and my professor Michael Cheers where we followed the lives of ten Bay Area barbers who were all linked by their profession and by place of work. Although these barbers share a work place, their stories could not be more unique. This photo essay features Jason Lim, a third generation Chinese American barber who uses barbering as an escape from his past and a source of income for his family.
