June 23, 2010 at 1:41 am
She's one cool lady. Thankyou for putting a photograph of someone who isn't trying so hard to be a fashion plate. This lady has her own thing happening and she's beautiful all the more for it!

I love how she can pull it off!
June 23, 2010 at 2:01 am
Scott, love the fact that you don't get caught up in all the glamor of the fashion world & notice the interesting everyday people around you.
Sometime we get so rushed that we pass by "masterpieces" every day.
This would make a great photo spread! Put some heels on her & it could be a GREAT shoe ad!
June 23, 2010 at 2:12 am
She is beautiful!
June 23, 2010 at 2:14 am
I love this.
She seems to be very proud – that makes the difference I think. I see a proud women not a poor cleaning lady.
June 23, 2010 at 2:20 am
agreed. she's using that prop very well too!

June 23, 2010 at 2:44 am
You should do more uniforms Scott. Some people wear them really well and some just shouldn't be there wearing them at all. Take the flight attendant for example. You should go out to JFK one day and capture some of those international crews departing. (not arriving…they will look too tired…haha) That airport has a whole world of airlines flying in and out of there. Imagine all the different uniforms you could capture.
the thing that makes her stand out is that she's cute and know how to strike a pose. it has nothing to do with how she wears the uniform or her style.
she would have stood out anyway, no matter the context or the way she was dressed.
put her in a high fashion dress and she would still be an interesting subject.
June 23, 2010 at 2:51 am
It's sad to see that people is often used to wear an uniform without having conscence of it!
Many many thanks for her ! Her smile, she is so cute !Sunny Side
She makes me think of Bob Dylan's song "What's a Sweetheart Like You Doing In A Place Like This." I continue to be impressed by your knack for finding beauty in all the places people are.
June 23, 2010 at 2:57 am
you would have loved the uniform project http://theuniformproject.com/
365 days the one dress/uniform but a different look everyday…. i followed it amazing what you can do with a uniform….

The most beautiful example what beautiful means and that money doesn't make the style. I love her legs , her smile , her hair , her attitude .This is beauty and elegance .
June 23, 2010 at 3:09 am
Reminds me of Carol Burnett but with dreads. That's cool that she can be wearing a smock, holding a mop, have crazy dreads and still look so pretty!
June 23, 2010 at 3:10 am
she definitely has attitude.
Stunning, can't help but center on her and everything else is background noise
June 23, 2010 at 3:13 am
Thanks Scott all too often the cleaners cooks etc are regarded as 'non people' fab that you took time to notice and acknowledge. It reminds me of my first trip to Paris many years ago where I saw a security guard in the Louvre who by virtue his presentation , especially his jauntily tilted cap,upstaged most of the art!!

June 23, 2010 at 3:43 am
amazing photos … great style …I like the people at work this girl I photographed the Picts I also like to be on your own frequency

June 23, 2010 at 4:02 am
I´ve always believed that Style is the relationship between ones mind and soul. This picture is the perfect example of that. This girl has style! It´s not always about the DRESS! Thank you for your brilliance of seeing this and sharing!
June 23, 2010 at 4:14 am
yet she's hiding behind the broom. lol
June 23, 2010 at 4:26 am
Just shows you don't always need designer brands and fashion to look hot. I would say many men prefer the real look compared to catwalk models!
June 23, 2010 at 4:29 am
i adore her hair!!!
June 23, 2010 at 4:35 am
Great Picture and well spotted!Thank you Scott!
June 23, 2010 at 4:39 am
She has a really nice expression, she must be a very nice girl. I love her hair, I never had the courage to do that…;)
So lovely. I read that turquoise is considered to be a very positive, optimistic colour and she definitely brings out the best of it (with the help of her own styling choices). And you including the green of the broom stick – just genius, Scott!
June 23, 2010 at 4:42 am
Haha, a picture of cleaning lady with style in a style blog. A thing that only you could come up with. It makes me like you and your attitude and your blog even more. Well done.
She's definitely special.
June 23, 2010 at 4:45 am
I totally agree with you, great pic!
June 23, 2010 at 4:53 am
I love her hair, dreadlocks look so good :) It's always nice to see dreadlocks in blogs because it happens so seldom.

Last night I was with a group of expat friends and we were talking about how the AMA (sanitation workers) ladies are so chic.
One friend used to ask her local lady for make up tips.
June 23, 2010 at 5:17 am
One of the most beautiful photos you have put up in recent times. She comes right off the screen with her innocence and her life is almost there for you to touch but you'll never be able to. This picture captures so much, when you realise where it was taken it means even more.
June 23, 2010 at 5:32 am

June 23, 2010 at 5:41 am
Thank you Scott my mom always told me don’t judge people from their uniform no matters if they are cleaners or garbage collector, respect them and be always be kind ….
Yep, she's fantastic.And she reminds me of a friend of mine, who is REAL punk and has to wear an uniform too. He still keeps his hairstyle and his piercings on, 'cos they're symbols of his attitude.and ATTITUDE IS LINKED WITH OUR SOUL,to me, so he keeps being himself. and that's great, isn't it?
June 23, 2010 at 5:43 am
I 've always believed that inner beauty makes the whole look perfect. Even the most beautiful woman in the world lacks something if her face doesn't reflect her inner side. This photo expresses my opinion. The lady's eyes express gratidute and happiness. Her face trasforms her uniform into a dress and the background into a scenery.She is real, adorable. Thank you Scott for this amazing moment of life!

Very touching photo … continues in this way!

As someone who grew up wearing a uniform to school, I know this human penchant for individualism in the face of sameness all too well.
June 23, 2010 at 7:31 am
Fashion is putting on a uniform with the illusion of being different.
Fashion is conformity claming it is unique.
June 23, 2010 at 7:44 am
well, it was either the fashionable shade of turquoise of the uniform or it was the person and themselves that stood out.so its true that clothes do not maketh the man or woman, becuase it is something else that attracts us.
June 23, 2010 at 7:51 am
What a coincidence, I was just talking to somebody yesterday about uniforms and how they make people lose their identity, but she has clearly found a way around this and looks highly individual. Great post!
June 23, 2010 at 7:59 am
Very original picture. I was lucky to listen you talking in Barcelona, in Santa Eulalia, and this is another example of your unique point of view.

June 23, 2010 at 8:14 am
What is implicit in this image is the non-uniformity of the uniform. Anna dello and all the fashion world people are much more strait jacketed into their ridiculous almost clown-like fashion editor uniforms than this young woman. Dreads or no.The dreads themselves are a rebellion against uniformity…
She probably just dresses like a stoner when she's not at work, I guess that could be interpreted as a style.
June 23, 2010 at 8:26 am
She wears it well.

I adore this photo and this lady. She is so vivid within a uniform. Her uniform harmonize with her character. I think uniforms make us confortable enough to concentrate our expression of uniqueness other than clothing.
This picture makes me happy!

I'm in love, she's so pretty i can not believe it!

she's so pretty. and so natural
I like her smile and funny hair :)
June 23, 2010 at 10:31 am
Ah no – the reason that she 'stood out in that crowd' is surely because she's absolutely beautiful.
But yes, I can see that she posesses those quantities of elegance and exhuberance that are so rarefied.
Am in Florence in a few weeks and I hope I bump into her!
June 23, 2010 at 10:57 am
it's the grin!
June 23, 2010 at 11:02 am
Three questions:1) Is she happy to be wearing her uniform, and to be working a job that imposes a visible identity on her?2) If she smiles in her uniform, does that make it okay for us to appreciate (from our privileged perspective) the contrast between how she is forced to look at work and how she wishes she could look?3) Would you have shot this girl in her full street clothes?
Food for thought.
June 23, 2010 at 11:05 am
I just love your blog, having recently come upon it. It gives me license to be who I want to be and not adhere by strict uniform guidelines. I love to top off whatever I'm wearing with something that gives others pause. Just when they thought they knew me….ha!

I really agree with you.The best style comes from the inside…sometimes it really dosen´t matter what you wear,it means how you carry it.And anyway retro is back,so this uniform,looks good too.

June 23, 2010 at 11:20 am
One of the best things about really good photos is that, along with their other artistic virtues, they reveal the soul of the photographer. When these subjects are looking into the camera, they always have warmth and trust in their eyes. This speaks legions about our photographer and, as much as anything, it is what brings me back to this blog time and time again.
June 23, 2010 at 11:36 am
I totally agree. I used to work for Dior and had to wear the same black uniform attire everyday, i have very eclectic style so i could not handle not adding my own flair. Good for this girl!!!! She looks adorable.

Seems fun and laid-back!
June 23, 2010 at 1:26 pm
I find it interesting that uniforms are meant to be background to whatever is happening, so that cleaning, cooking, whatever the establishment doesn't want to be seen, is hidden. But she manages to transgress this by her funky attitude and her great hair. Uniforms are by their nature, defacing.
June 23, 2010 at 1:51 pm
love that u brought the uniform topic up…have u heard about the uniform project? its about a girl in NYC who wore one dress for a whole year and styled it differently everyday to make a point in sustainability and fashion. and this exercise was done to also raise money for education of underprivileged children in India…i love the concept and she recently finished her 365 days in that dress… i ofcourse donated to her cause.. check it out
June 23, 2010 at 1:57 pm
what a refreshingly unique glimpse into the role of uniform & fashion
It's easy to catch the eye when one wears oh-so-deliberate eccentricity or stunning opulence, but this woman in everyday attire, her spirit shining forth is also and every bit as beautiful.
June 23, 2010 at 2:04 pm

Fantastic photo, I love how her uniform and broom pop against the beige background, top it off with her great hair and head scarf and you have a truly astonishing photograph.
I have to admit that I also love her pose, a great portrait is when you feel as though you've learned something about the person displayed, and I feel as though you've really accomplished that in this photograph.
June 23, 2010 at 4:20 pm
I agree with Sarah above. The picture seems to tell you so much about the girl.She has great visual charisma.

Scott, you are always surprising me (in a very good way!!!), I really love this blog each time more and more!The color of this uniform itself is already something we might find interesting for a start and the lady, she is definitely lovely and seems to be someone very smart! I just keep on trying to picture her without this dreadlocked hair… I am quite sure she wud look even greater!!!Lovely pic!
June 23, 2010 at 4:35 pm
Just when I was getting a teeny bit bored . . . and thinking this blog was TOO bourgeois . . . and 'well it's easy for the Giovanna's of this world to look great' you surprise us with this great image . . . terrific to celebrate someone who who isn't afraid of hard work !!

I agree with 'The Photodiarist'! In my high school, we had uniforms and everyone managed to make their statement, be it with the WAY you wore it, your jewelry, hairstyle…Another interesting point is people who dress within the 'boundaries of a code' for religeous reasons – yet they manage to be individualistic as well, with colors, patterns, and attention to detail.Great stuff!

For aussie :
We'd rather talk about rules we need to break to make good fashion than rules we need to follow no ? Fashion needs to evolve, that's why we need to investigate more in order to produce good fashion and not to be turning around and always come back to "good old fashion". Rules need to be learned to be broken no ?

Beautiful photo, beautiful woman. As someone mentioned earlier, many people either overlook workers in service jobs or see them as office fixtures, not as human beings. (Unfortunately, that attitude often infects their behavior toward workers as well.) Thanks for SEEING this woman, creating art with her, and putting her photo right alongside those of the bourgie (and, honestly, boring) women of Milano below.

Super cool! I am inspired.
June 24, 2010 at 7:56 am
Great dreads.Yes, unifroms are great for showing the someone's style in a subtle way–it sort of gives hints but leaves an air of mystery there as well.I love it here in Australia how with some of the more relaxed public schools the kids have to wear a uniform but are still able to show some of their own style and character. So you can get interesting juxtapositions such as dreads or a vintage tooled leather belt with formal grey trousers and a crisp white shirt. Usually as long as things are in school colours it's deemed ok.
June 24, 2010 at 8:07 am
One of your best shots, ever.It is easy to shoot cool people from the fashion world, but it is very difficult to catch an image like this one where style grows out of a person with an ordinary job.Monica
June 24, 2010 at 8:53 am
I've been reading your blog for a while and I am truly a fan of your work but I just can not agree this time. Of course it is about taste and finding someone "stylish" is a subjective manner, but I do not see how is this outfit "playing with the boundaries of a code". She is beautiful in the sense that every person is beautiful in his or her individuality but it is just a uniform and she didn't add anything to it. It's a photo of a girl looking sweet in uniform but not a person playfully altering her clothes.
Just trying to understand here, no offense :)
June 24, 2010 at 8:54 am
Love her dimple…great shot.
June 24, 2010 at 9:47 am
shows her personality even in uniform, not everyone can do that! BEAUTIFUL!

Especially at the hospital where the rules are so specific and many!Thanks for this post!

I have read this blog for a long time and never needed to comment, but as a person who worked in a uniform for years, I just have to say that it can be so easy to not even try when you know you can't control your own wardrobe. I always tried to find ways to be unique, but never did it as well as her. Great photo and intriguing girl.

Good lord she's gorgeous. I love women in uniform!

Love this so much I had to repost it, hope that's ok.Much love, Lydia

u said something about UNIFORM..and something pretty similar to what I wrote in my blog… thanks… u let me feel I am not the only thinking it in a certain way.
June 24, 2010 at 6:28 pm
Speaking of uniforms, I am one of those people who dreads getting dressed in the morning if I've already worn the only two or three outfits that I actually like for the week. I would love to have a uniform that I could wear pretty much every day, with only minor variations here and there. Why is it so hard to find more than a few things that I like to wear? I am an artist, so I suppose I could get away with wearing the same thing almost every day and chalk it up to quirkiness. Or poverty. Or both! :)

Agree, it takes style to make a uniform look unique!

The highlight of my day is seeing how people live their lives – often expressed through their outer layer 'clothes' and this represents an inner vision of themselves. I adore that this beautiful gem is HERSELF. x Thank you so much Scott – you brighten my world!

Martin The only comment that made senseIndeed fashion is one of the most conforming things out there, bottomless pit of despair for those involved.
June 25, 2010 at 3:42 am
uniforms can never hide the uniqueness of a person..beautiful person and photo!!
June 25, 2010 at 4:59 am
Good job, Sart! You're MY MAN!
June 25, 2010 at 7:30 am
well, yeah, the uniform is ugly, but just from this photograph, you can tell that she'd be a cool individual. i feel like she's really awesome and fun to hang out with. amazing what you can learn from a person from just one photograph, eh?
June 25, 2010 at 7:37 am
Scott can I suggest that an equally apt title for this pic as 'Not hiding behind her uniform'might be seeing behind her uniform. The relationship between the photographer and the subject here is truly dialectical ( in philosophical terms.)
June 25, 2010 at 9:04 am
She´s gorgeous. I would love to see a photo of her in her street clothes.
June 25, 2010 at 9:18 am
she looks like a super hip and styling person. Would love to see how her 'day off' style as well! Love the photo too!
June 25, 2010 at 4:10 pm
This is so silly. if this picture hadn't been posted here, I'm sure none of you would have given this woman a second look in real life. Stop the madness and be honest.
June 25, 2010 at 4:46 pm
No matter what job you have, be proud of it. It doesn't define who you are…
June 25, 2010 at 6:05 pm
Wow what a fantastic shot … absolutely fabulous … only Scott could have done a shot like this …anyone else looking at her would think, yeah well ordinary looking girl in a shapeless unflattering dress the color of hospital scrubs … only someone with Scott's vision would take a shot like this … and have the courage to post this on a fashion blog seen around the world … bravo … more like this please … continue to dazzle us … I'm breathless … with anticipation … have to sit down now!

When someone is Unique, that transcends clothing.
She's rocking the uniform!!
June 27, 2010 at 2:08 am
I can't put the right words to describe how I love this shoot and how I am amazed by the fact that style to you is not about the label the cloth hold or the price tag..it's all about the personalities ..
June 27, 2010 at 7:29 am
Fantastic shot! This is why this blog is so important in our time: uniqueness among the crowd. Beautiful! It has made my day better somehow.
June 27, 2010 at 10:31 am
It's surprising to hear you say that – usually your subjects fit into a cookie cutter uniform of models in designer clothes.
June 27, 2010 at 8:21 pm
She looks beautiful!
June 28, 2010 at 7:38 am
It's an inspiring picture, one wonders what is felt when made to wear a uniform like that…The beauty is that she sees, we see, beyond just the uniform and into the personality of the one wearing it.
June 28, 2010 at 1:29 pm
Pride never goes out of fashion.
June 28, 2010 at 6:03 pm
Beauty is all around, if we just look for it!
June 28, 2010 at 11:31 pm
Thank you for taking this pic. It shows us style and beauty come from within, and those rich trendwhores often look kinda desperate!
June 29, 2010 at 3:34 am
Finally some stylish working class non-snobbery, bravo!
June 29, 2010 at 9:07 am
Thank you for showing a normal/every-day/not filthy rich sort of person. It's nice to day dream with those types of people, but those of us in the "real" and "blah" world do appreciate it when you take notice ;)Thanks again!

I love the uniqueness that one can put into a uniform look intended to make you blend in. Rather than making you blend in, when you add your own style, like this lady did, you become what I would call an average everyday icon of this day and age.
June 29, 2010 at 1:55 pm
luv this pic =)

She is gorgeous.
June 30, 2010 at 2:05 am
That's a very interesting thought on uniforms and I totally agree. Out of a fashion perspective it's really intriguing.
June 30, 2010 at 12:30 pm
Posting this picture shows that people will make a big deal over anything you post. Bravo to your influence.
Honestly, this is just a woman in a uniform, no more no less.
I'm sure most people who've posted here have seen "this woman" in a hotel they were staying in and didn't think one thing unique or spectacular about her or the uniform she was wearing. How about some honesty along with the fantasy?
July 1, 2010 at 5:45 pm
i see people like this every day! i see nothing of special in this… everyday people, not models.or something like this.. i'm totally agree with anonimous:"This is so silly. if this picture hadn't been posted here, I'm sure none of you would have given this woman a second look in real life. Stop the madness and be honest."4 SURE!!!

I have a hunch that part of her confidence/happiness is her knowledge that she's not going to be working jobs like that (back breaking labor) forever. She's clearly going places.
July 3, 2010 at 4:43 am
right on the money with this one!!
July 3, 2010 at 12:28 pm
Wonderful picture and love the dreads.
I believe you could totally substitute the word "Fashion" for "Uniforms" here:
"Uniforms are, by nature, an attempt to make people conform to a code."
It's what's inside that counts.
July 5, 2010 at 7:05 am
Damn right! (About uniform'isation vs a need to stand out.
July 5, 2010 at 3:43 pm
thank you everyone! i've just read all your comment and i'm very proud to be so well commented. Good luck to everyone! martina
July 6, 2010 at 5:36 pm
The way she is waering it, it doen´t look like a unform AT ALL, it looks like a summer dress she choose in the moring when think about the upcoming day and what to wear.Great
July 20, 2010 at 12:49 pm
Well said! I just wish everyone understood this concept.
August 9, 2010 at 11:44 am
so natural…so good.. sooo chic.. I like this
August 23, 2010 at 2:20 pm
Gorgeous. She has spunk and beauty.

If anyone can make aqua look cool, I'd say it was her.
December 5, 2010 at 7:57 pm
Gorgeous. She definitely stands out, and the colour of the uniform is striking.
March 1, 2011 at 1:22 pm
Je trouve que de cette photo ressort beaucoup de gaité. Pour moi c'est vraiment une BELLE photo car nous avons tendance à être peiné face aux femmes de ménages ou aux personnes qui s'occupe de la propreté, mais contrairement à nos croyance, ici, cette jeune femme à l'air épanouie.Un grand bravo!
May 24, 2012 at 9:21 am
Gorgeous woman. Love the eyebrows, and her long, slender libs. The cute smile is wonderful too. You take wonderful portraits, Scott.

Great shot. Lots of character … and definitely not something everyone would photograph.
