    It's the interior, that does the thing

    I love the light in this photograph – and the forthright expression – I can feel the photographer's presence and his affect on the mood of this sitter – all the textures in the back ground the glass the gilt – the curious objects add to the mystery.

    Is he rocking Adidas? Cool shot and what's he holding? At first I thought it was a rugby ball but it's too small.

    What a great specimen on mankind. Love his open shirt, holding the ball, the paint brushes, the antiques, et. al.

    lovely to see an interior shot….i must say that the context rather than the subject is what is so captivating about this photograph….love the atmosphere

    I adore the shot, Scott. Not quite sure if you intend to show his style though — as photos here typically do — 'cause we don't really see much of it.

    This is surely of one of those greeting cards – Happy Birthday to my Father/Husband – where a collection of male accoutrements is put together to portray the cultured – but at the same time rugged – aspects of the man in question. Ocean going yachtsman, explorer of dangerous coastlines, kicker of footballs and – yes, the guy has just slapped a coat of paint on the back fence.
    Yet he has managed a pause in front of the gilt mirror to fine tune the hair and practise the brow furrows.
    Good fun…
    And I do very much like the colours.

    It truly is the setting. He would be handsome regardless of the setting, but the atmosphere takes it to another level.

    Actually this guy and his outfit is totally average, not to mention his sneakers. It's the light and the interior that "lifts" him to a higher level.

    Oh my – where do I start? Instantly in love with this picture. Love the composition, lighting, textures, feel and subject couldn't be more masculine yet soft; expression, the texture of the leather/wood? ball he's holding, his face, skin and the fuzz of hairy forearms and beard.
    Don't laugh, but it reminds me of the portraits the Old Masters painted of their Dukes and Royal Princes.

    I can smell the musk in that room. Great use of accessories for the picture. The German cross pendant he's wearing adds nicely to the look.

    Love this photo but I have a dumb question: is that a sport ball in his hand or does it have some other function? Just curious that's all.

    I am way more interested in that shop than the guy. Or what he is wearing (which is quite average).

    Great shot, great advert for Paula's taste, and a guy who knows how to put himself together with just enough flair. Bang on.

    I agree with anonymous – the shop is more interesting than the guy –
    wonderful shot though.

    the bull in the china shop, and i mean that as a huge compliment rather than a slur. he's terrifically masculine. i love this picture.

    Scott, how come this picture look so different from the rest?

  60. Jeffrey

    October 23, 2009 at 6:26 pm

    The colors, the interior, the presence of the mirror and the light coming from the left… This is so Vermeer… This is perhaps one of my favorite pictures by you Scott.

    Something about the way he carries himself gives me the sense that he is quite honest. I would trust him.

    there is so much artistic quality to this picture. This is the type of thing I wouldn't mind having blown up and framed and on the wall in my home. Great photography job and who cares about "fashion" when you have such a timeless thinking piece?

    agree that it's great to see an interior shot. more please; scott did some shots inside a paris cafĂ© last month that had the same great combination of interior atmosphere and clothes resonating with each other. …plus in winter, we get to see things that aren't hidden by coats!
    thanks for the inspiration!

    I expected different shoes. It's perhaps that lack of expectation that makes me question the validity of this man as a fashionable person. However, it is good to see simple, rugged, American manliness on this blog.

    I think fashionably rugged is a look a lot of American men can pull off but overlook. So aside from the shoes, kudos!

    This is a great portrait because it allows the observer to imagine this man’s story behind it; the decor, the light, the understated elegance of this man sitting in what I imagine to be his antiques shop could be the first scene of a story that is about to unfold and it all depends on your imagination!

    This great photograph exudes style more than fashion.
