Do you know the Sartorialist? If not, allow me to make an introduction. In 2005, Scott Schuman started taking pictures of people with an inspiring style on the streets of New York.
Having worked in fashion sales for years, he’d developed quite the eye for a great “look.” His photos make me want to move to to New York, which is saying a lot. They also make me want to go shopping, which is more than I can say for a lot of catalogs these days. Real people (are New Yorkers real people?) have such amazing style. Last year he released a book with select images. Que bella.
Some of the images are just stunning (he doesn’t favor re-posting them, so check the site). I wonder, is it stressful, knowing you may be captured on camera by the Sartorialist when you leave your house each day? Is it worse if you see him on the street, and he doesn’t bother to ask you for a photo? All questions you can ask him yourself, I suppose – he’s in town for a visit – one night only!

He’s speaking to the students at SCAD Atlanta this morning, and we are all so excited. I don’t know that I’m in my Sunday best, but you know, I look kinda cute.
