    I appreciate the odd portrait now and again; there are complaints to "see the clothes", but we must remember that fashion would be nothing without concepts, personalities, auras and even egos.

    Looking into someone's face, especially through a black and white lens, is an effective way to show the contrast – and interdependence – that clothes and people share.

    And, this is just a beautiful, straight-forward photo.

    Merci!

    leaving apart my personal opinions about this personality, this photograph is just beautiful.
    there is no question of him being "checkbook fashionista", this photograph doesn't even speak about his fashion sense. even if this was a random person, it wouldnt change how great this photograph is.

    Love him or hate him, he's just Kanye. Sure, seeing the clothes would have been nice, but who says style comes from clothes alone anyway. Style is personal essence, not just the clothes you wear. This portrait reminds me of that.

    The scar on his nose makes him imperfect, but more perfectly human at the same time. The deep pools of darkness below his brow reveal nothing, but say "I feel" all at once.

    He is nothing but a man in this photo, no opinion, no music and no flamboyant fashion. More controversial public figures should purge periodically with BW photos, no sideshows, and a frank interview about the past. Step out anew with a clean slate.

    Kanye is cool–he makes mistakes, he loves, he lost his mother, he almost died. I think he is just like the rest of us. Human.

    Great portrait. But I need at least 10 pictures of Anna Dello Russo or Alessandra to get the picture of this unhappy face out of my head. He looks like a spoilt brat. To me, this site is about the joy of clothing & dressing up, joy of life even. In fact, it changed my life. :-) I don't get any joy from looking at Kanye though. He may look stylish, but with facial expressions like these it seems like it's painful business…

    Gorgeous photography Scott. It's funny to read classless comments about someone else being classless; as if making a mistake or two in life determine who you are. Glad you're a fan Scott, I am as well. Many of us here in Yale University follow both of your works closely. Still waiting on a full body shot of Kanye from you. Nice day!

    I think maybe I have not been acquainted long enough with your blog to understand your interest in shots of Kanye West. As a figure he provides very stunning portraits but his image is one seen in the faces of many men of African heritage who have faced the challenges of just being. There must be something about him that attracts you and makes having his portraits on your pages so necessary? There are features, character-lines and scars and textures that are interesting to look at but I am not sure what it is about them being his features that is so intriguing for you?

    That said the shot is stunning, arresting and provocative. Enough so that seeing what he is wearing seems unimportant. The style or the presence overrides and dominates.

    I see art here.

    Kanye I listened to the nay sayers and stayed in NYC instead of moving to Paris where I am loved and appreciated. Kanye did I make a mistake? Flew there on Christmas day 2007 for the first time and kept going back. I picked up your magazine cover with Daft Punk that year at Hudson news at JFK before boarding. My mom wanted me to live there. That was her dream This comment is random and all over the place, but Kanye I know you understand where I'm coming from….I am a journalist and I document poverty and social classes…Rivers…Oh and if only you knew…you have so much POWER!

    What makes this photo "all that" if it weren't Kanye? If it weren't Kanye – it would just be a snap of some guy – much prefer Modern Young Lady – we don't know who she is but the photo of her conveys so much more than this mug shot.

    I am a big fan of your ability to capture unique personalities. Just doesn't quite work on this one…

    I really appreciate this blog. All the styles and pictures are great.

    But WHY Kanye??? This takes some of the class and sympathy of this blog away. Sorry…

    kanye is a very expressive man! he is the perfect subject for portrait photography, his emotions always clearly written in his eyes. and always he strikes me as someone who is sad, tortured somehow.

    you should try to take some portraits of EMINEN, would be a great contrast to your work on Kanye.

    I don't care how pretty he thinks he is – this is not a man to venerate with any sort of attention.

    I see this as a great portrait. You can read much emotions from his face while he is still. We all know Kanye is a style icon, I'm also just as interested in the man.

    this photo is striking – I think I stared at it for about 5 minutes before continuing to scroll down…it's like you captured his soul in this photo – amazing!

    Great artist and style icon… and a wonderful portrait! Well done!!

    And to the haters — Kanye didn't make a mistake. He was acting like a proper rock star… and he's clearly the last of a dying breed. If Axel Rose or Kurt Cobain had dissed Taylor Swift on stage, they would be loved for it, not treated like they snatched her purse on the subway!

    Check yourself peoples… don't drink the media Cool Aid.

    This portrait is utterly exquisite. It is intriguing, as all the best portraits are. It makes me want to know more about what he's thinking and who he really is. Thank you.

    Kanye's always had great style, aside from his checkbook status. You can have all the money in the world, but the best stylist in the world cannot give you swagger. I view this site to witness great style and presence. I don't come her to assess the character of an individual.

    I was indifferent about the previous Kanye "fur" photo, BUT I really do love how much debate and conversation can be sparked by one photo. This is a fantastic image that just makes one stop, stare and consider a lot of things. All of these comments simply state the power of portraiture.

    Not him again !

    A look of faux gravitas and feigned depth.

    A perfect demonstration of the fact that true class, true dignity and true grace, simply cant be bought.

    Your camera doesnt lie, and for that reason, despite the subject matter, this is quite a profound shot.
