The Sartorialist

I love this blog, and it gives me inspiration daily. This man is genius. His name is Scott Schuman, and he works as a fashion photographer. According to his biography, he started writing The Sartorialist because 

"I thought I could shoot people on the street the way designers looked at people, and get and give inspiration to lots of people in the process. My only strategy when I began The Sartorialist was to try and shoot style in a way that I knew most designers hunted for inspirations.

His original inspiration for the blog came from a photograph of a man on a street taken by German photographer August Sander. Incidentally, he is now involved in an exhibition of works that are in homage to that same photograph. 

I love the people he captures, the creativity and the confidence and the style...I love that these people don't wear the It Bag or even any bag, maybe. For God's sake, that woman in the last photo looks like she's wearing an entire family of rabbits on her back...and she looks fabulous.
