A Sartorialist post we’ve all been waiting for

13 Jan

Scott Schuman

Scott Schuman, otherwise known as ‘The Sartorialist‘ bought about the idea of a ‘digital park bench’ to our computer screens through his artistic snapshots of ‘fashionista’ passers by. Paris fashion week, Milan, New York and London have been his regular haunts – but more recently he’s popped up in Florence and Seoul, Korea.

Platforms such as Grazia magazine and FaceHunter style blog have both adopted this voyeristic standpoint. You can even refine your search to specific global locations with sites like Street Peeper. Professionals say this ‘Sartorialist’ invention has even established itself as a new brand of journalism.

Schuman, however has his signature style and is more fine art substance than fleeting fashion style. He often snaps the ‘ordinary folk‘ of life, in his bid to inspire and capture all kinds of visual art. I’ve been checking in with ‘thesartorialist.blog‘ for some time now, and if you’re like me and think ‘people watching’ should be an official pass-time then this is the epicentre of where you should indulge in your favourite hobby.

The kind people of Intel were lovely enough to give us a 7 minute long insight in to how the visual maestro actually does it (Scott posted this mini-film on his blog.)

Please do enjoy (probably not half as much as I did):
