The Sartorialist is in my town (Dallas, TX) today for his book signing. Ironically, I’m in his (New York, NY). I was disappointed I wouldn’t be meeting Scott Schuman personally; however, my good friend Sara, who authors Pair Diem, amicably agreed to take my book along with hers to the signing. Thank you!
As a self-taught photographer, Scott has turned his expertise at The Sartorialist into a respected photography career. I picked up the beautifully produced, luxury limited-edition hardback aptly titled The Sartorialist. The size of the book was curious, lacking the sweeping visual impact most books featuring photography establish; however, Scott explains his influence in creating a lack of preciousness. These are some of my favorites.
“I hope that, as you look at the images in this book, rather than giving a look a ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’, you will focus on the elements that could inspire you...it’s all about self expression. I rarely shoot a look where I love all the elements.”
