The Sartorialist: Closer, by Scott Schuman
512-page paperback book
Publisher: Penguin Books
Printed and bound in Italy
Scott Schuman is a fine observer of our times, managing to capture with his unique vision the street style from around the globe, its beauty in all its diversity. He doesn’t just take a picture, he tells a story through every one of his photos. And I love his stories. Scott Schuman has the ability to show the beauty in everyone, in the everyday, in unassuming moments. He evokes your imagination into the subject’s life. He makes the subject look approchable but yet keep a little mystery there. His photographs are a celebration of individual style and ideas and diversity. They are bold and amazing and I love the amount of life bursting from them. And although there’s always his blog to enjoy, there’s something so special about being able to browse through The Sartorialist’s selective work on paper. You feel you are a little closer to his photography and his stories.
