the apparel has a bit of a street urchin last century feel to it. certainly mixing the decades together. tiny prints from the 30's little ankle boots from 1900 line of the coat from the 40's, but the colour definitely 80's. textured stockings from 1910. interesting mix.
I just love love love your backgrounds….I mean this girl is gorgeous and her outfit wonderful, but then you set her in this staged front face lighting, dark background with hints of orange in the back and a few letters aglow….wow! Tremendous.
She really is quite startlingly lovely, and her quirky style makes me smile. These portraits remind me of the photographs commissioned by the Farm Services Administration during the great depression, though they convey a very contemporary narrative.
It's amazing how certain people can make things work that most other people would never even consider trying. It makes me want to find something unique in my own style and give things a try even when they may not turn out perfectly.
The light in the first photo is incredible and I love the lack of makeup and the way her hair and skin glow.
What an icon. She has to have a story, and most of it lie ahead of her. Lots of time in this picture, in its beauty. Itâ€™s almost like a film, and would be the perfect opening of a film. Also love the quote in the fabric of her dress, the girls from Pennsylvania back in August. Lots of story in these shots, people in these clothes and spaces. Congratulations.
I saw the close-up of her face first, then the full body shot. My first thought was "gorgeous girl!". My second thought "super hip, funky girl with all kinds of style & personality". Love that she has her own look & strong self confidence-refreshing. Cool that she's got beauty and a personal sense of style…
A Ginger! And she's pale as milk, with no bronzer, no faux tan, no blush. And no qualms about wearing traditional non-redhead-colors. Hallelujah! Power to the pale and proud! (And I only wish my auburn were that vivid ginger-gold.)
All your postings are very interesting and of course I look at them a lot like everyone else. But this one and the posts around it display way too un-flattering outfits. Maybe that's why people keep wearing them because influential people say thay look good…effortless and oversized is ok but we are effortless at home, with family, etc….why can't people pull something nice for the street? I think effortless looks should be kept for the ones we love…on the street it looks somewhat out of place. Being a very nice person with a good attitude is something very different from dressing nice.
I've ALWAYS wanted freckles. there is a certain je ne sais quoi about 'em.
anyways, this girl is beautiful. how au naturel. and sh!t, by the look on her face it looks as though no one is stopping her. she puts me to shame. the next time i apply foundation, i know i'll feel so guilty..
She's gorgeous! I had that exact same coat in nave blue with gold buttons and my mom used it as a cat bed while I was away at college….ahhhhhhhh!!!! I am still devastated by it today and it has been over 10 years!
WOW, I WAS PASSING BY JUST AS THIS SHOOT HAPPENED! PHOTOGRAPHY IS A MATTER OF FRAMING AND CONTEXTUALISING. NONETHELESS, THE IMPRESSIONS OF THE LOUD AND STINKY STREETS OF CHINATOWN/LES ARE MISSING IN THIS BEAUTIFUL VISUAL EXTRACT …
I’ve seen her before, was she the one in Central Park? Is she a model? She’s Beautiful! If she’s not a model, maybe she should be! Just saying! Scott you are a great photographer! Not just this picture, but every photograph!!! Happy New Year!
