Great news on the cover!
Your evocation–the right word?–of GQ’s history takes me back (I won’t say how far) to the days when I wrote for them….the mag has undergone many an editorial twist and turn since then, finally settling into what it’s been for the last decade or so.
Nothing like poring through old issues–the 70s, let’s say–to see that fashion is indeed, well, just that.

For a well-dressed gent who transcends several soundscapes, I’d agree “rocking” is quite appropriate for Mr. West.

I love how excited you sound in this post… but dammit, it’s contagious and now I want GQ October!

Congratulations, Sart! Your cellphone picture of Kanye is also very impressive! Looking forward to seeing the issue.

this is how i know you are a proper photographer – you can take great photos with your camera phone. I am jealous!

Congrats on the GQ cover. Yes it is perfectly ok to say that a hip-hop show rocked :) From the looks of the pic, it looks like it rocked! You even have great photography skills with a camera phone!

I think “slammin” might work better in this context? I think hugging LL was maybe the highlight of the evening for me. Still looking fine.

What an incredible picture of Kayne West!! I can’t believe you captured that with just your cell phone – you blow my mind!

I’m little disappointed. Are you that kind of people able to have fun on rap/hip-hop music?
Anyway, i’m a sartorialist fan.

let me be honest…I took about 50 crap shots to get that one good one

my favorite thing about this post: the shoutout to kroger! seriously, no one in nyc has ever heard of kroger unless they’re transplants from elsewhere in the country.

Love the big ups to Kroger – I just moved to NYC from Indiana! And I can’t believe (well, actually I can) how good your cellphone pic is. I would have never thought that was taken on a cell camera. (BTW I don’t really say ‘big ups’ it just seemed to fit with the hip hop theme)

For hip hop, you can always say it was poppin’.

I subscribed to GQ as a college student (I’m a guy) and I still flip through it once in awhile…and I have to admit, it is not the most exciting fashion magazine. I guess I’m not in the demographic of their intended readers.

Your photos are a daily inspiration…what an eye you have. And I’m delighted to know that my home state produced such an illustrious export!

Which cellphone do you have? How many megapixels? My cellphone pics never come out that great.

To Anony 11:14am:
Sart is an artist and artists appreciate other artist’s work.
You obviously don’t know who Kanye West is.

(I just wanted to shout out my favorite regional supermarket name)

kroger! lets not limit that grocer to indiana alone…michigan has them as well!

This is a fantastic photo from a purely compositional view, the patterns of light, the X created by his body and arms, the colors. Lots of energy in this! Cell phone cameras have come a long way it seems but do you not carry an elph or other small digital with you? Granted still a little bulky for dancing and having fun. I like the quiet grace of your street fashion shots but it’s nice to see this more dynamic shot as well.
September 19, 2007 at 8:12 pm
Yay! You mentioned Krogers, do they have that in NY? I love that place (low prices) and ,by the by, that’s a pretty nice camera phone you must have.
September 19, 2007 at 8:33 pm
That picture is fantastic, Sart. Although it clearly looks different from the rest of your photos, I never would have guessed that it was taken with a camera phone.
I can imagine that the party must have been quite an experience, and for some reason, although he has made many a questionable fashion decision in the past, Kanye seems like the perfect option to perform at such a party.

I have a Blackberry Curve that has a 2 MP camera and I have not been able to get a good photo of any moving object/person with it. :(
That is a great photo! What brand and model of phone do you have?

was kanye still complaining about the vmas? what a douche.

Another who loved the Kroger shout-out. I’m often dran to the magazine aisle there before I start picking up perishables when I’ve got a little time and am doing the grocery shopping without the kids. A little glance at Vogue, a few minutes with Glamour…”Krogers,” as we always call it, is huge down here in the South. And did you know they own about five other chains? I once got my Kroger card to work at a Ralph’s out in LA.
Anyway, I love that Kanye shot, and all your photographs, but had never gotten around to commenting. The Kroger mention just pulled me right out of the woodwork.
