Whether you love it or hate it, “seen on the street” fashion photography is here to stay. So why not make the best of the situation and pick up a book by the reigning leader of the be-lensed pack The Sartorialist. While the book officially comes out August 12th, you can read the author’s initial reactions here.
The Sartorialist, who has also had work featured on style.com and GQ, was originally the brain-child of stay at home dad and former director of men’s fashion at a design showroom Scott Schuman. Schuman initially set out to document people who caught his eye as he walked through NYC, capturing the images with his own digital camera. Schuman’s keen eye, plus his frank writing style have led to him being asked to shoot for Conde Nast, Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as appearing in A 2008 GAP ad campaign. You can pre-order the book online from Amazon or Borders.com, and check out the blog for international retailers.
