Funny, the hair and the accessories combination plus the fact the picture is in black and white gives me a sense as if this picture was representing the modern way to continue tribal costume and tradition. Incredibly inspiring photograph.
These eyes! A mix of proud and scary…I feel strange vibes. In the same time, this guy seems have a strong personality, see that hair…Combination of tribal necklace and shirt…And I do not know why (These eyes!!!) a little something sounds wrong.
I wish it was more common to see men wearing neck adornment like this fellow. I'd love to do it, but I lack the confidence necessary to feel comfortable walking out the door thusly embellished. Sure looks good on him, though! Great photograph!
I'm not a fan of black and white photography for its own sake–whilst I realise it's meant to be arty, sometimes it just doesn't work for me. In this case the subject isn't angular or dramatic enough–(and I'm not talking about his eyes or strong stance). I'm not sure I can quite put my finger on it–but I would really like to see the colours of the beads and fine striping in the checks whether they are subtle or not. Maybe it's their subtlety, or not, that I'd like to see? Anyway I feel I can't make a judgement about this photo the way it is now–I just can't see enough into it.
beautiful.I've been sporting a modern pomp hair like this for some time, nice to see it here too. he's very beautiful in an unpolished, honest way. refreshing after all the plastic photoshopped images I've been looking at lately. Inspiring!
Love the hair! Although not sure whether it suits him. It looks a bit misplaced. Black eyes staring out look quite scary too, but I like that. Great photo…there had better be another Sartorialist book!
Budding photographers can learn so much from you, Scott. I adore how you always choose a background (purposely? I'd love to know your process in that decision) that complements the subject's clothes, like the mirroring line patterns here. Inspiring, every day.
I worked with him for years and he is by far the most stylish person I've ever met. This is him on a calm simple day and he still pulls it off with such style! (I have purposefully not said his name to respect his privacy)
i love this site but this is the first picture that has ever resonated with me enough to comment. this combination of the modern and the traditional is captivating and very well executed. the patterns (both the shirt and the brick background) are an interesting combination– would've also been cool to see him in a more traditional background with that hair as a stark contrast. anybody know his ethnicity? tibetan, maybe?
