Dizzee Rascal continues his quest to capture inspirational Britain with a trip to his favourite old school barbers as part of an inspiring, original collection of his images for the Bing.com ‘Your Britain’ photography project. The Mercury prize winning artist photographed inside the D & L’s Barbers on Hornsey Rd in Islington, London, which he regularly visits to fix up and look sharp. This retro, memory filled location is the latest shot to appear on the search engine’s homepage and you can see Britain through Dizzee’s eyes by visiting Bing.com

Commenting on his choice for Thursday’s homepage Dizzee said: “Nothing compares to the little local places, like the Barbers I still go to in London. To this day I still go there because I love catching up with my barber and hearing about the old crew. My mate Damon owns it and has cut my hair before every album cover shoot I’ve done, he’s a talented man. I’d never ask him to come to me though, I like the routine of going there.”
