    strangely beautiful… particularly the head portion… the wrinkles make it look like that paper fabric.

    Incredible! The shadows of each wrinkle are a world unto themselves. Reminds me of an extreme weather uniform I once saw in the Military Uniforms Visual Encyclopedia. Thanks for sharing!

    Bring back New York’s “White Wings”!

    http://www.nyhistory.org/community/white-wings

    Who were the “White Wings”?
    In 1895 street cleaning commissioner Colonel George E. Waring Jr. ordered his entire brigade of sweepers to wear all white uniforms and caps. He believed the eye-catching regulation whites would keep members of the force at work, and would prevent them from slacking off. Regulation whites remained in effect until the 1930s.

    You have captured the posture of the working man and we do not need to see the face or know the name – just feel the momentum of labor, easy, routined, paced and focused. A reversed sillouette in the city. Haunting and beautiful because we can feel it .

    The next step up from overalls: onesies.

    This is terrific. Its ambiguity makes the image very suggestive and transcend its subject matter. I’m surprised and that’s always good.

    Love THIS! Conceptual, dark, Crisis kind, uniform oriented, paradoxal, scary, Guantanamo, cyberpunk and in other words beyond sartorialist this is darktorialist!

    The anonymity of this individual is the definition of melancholy. He or she probably did not choose to wear this, however carries it off beautifully. Your photos are best when one is left wondering about the life of the person behind the outfit.

    It looked like a statue at first. Then I realized it was a person working with a head covering. Wonderful photo.

    This man or woman intrigues me. Solitaire movements inspire to walk alone.

    Just shows that style comes in many flavors. Love the use of white in this.

    What a beautiful image. This reminds me of two of my favourite contemporary painters, Michael Borremans and Neo Rauch.

    The combination of wrinkles and curved back makes this image a very fascinating combination of (male?) strenght and human fragility. I think photographically it would have been an even stronger image if taken from further away. Against a wider horizon the futility of human mankind would have been stressed, don’t you think? Otherwise: maybe already too much photos are composed that way already.
