    Very pretty, but I somehow wish that we could see the colours. It must have been quite something to look at!

    So stunning. I love the mix of menswear (with the collared shirt and bow-tie) with her feminine dress and headscarf. And she looks so regal while doing this!


    October 30, 2012 at 12:40 am

    This is a gorgeous photograph. So strong.

    In South Africa we call this style sophiatown….one could probably google sophiatown style Johannesburg to read up more on this topic. I am amazed to see this series of pics from Jhb
    ..never expected it to happen and makes a refreshing change!

    I agree with Elisa, I wish we could see the colour of this ensemble. I am a fan of the headwrap and in Africa it is not only a fashion accesory its also a big part of many cultures.

    I’m not one to post my opinion very often, but this image is just oooozing with magic And charm And could be enough to inspire an entire book to be written. This woman… To be able to hear her talk! Now I want to head to my wardrobe And start creating todays outfit.

    Black and white…very beautiful! I never used to do black and white photography until one day when a friend took a snap of me and guess what it looked like…very unique!

    I however feel you should include the coloured ones so that we can enjoy the fashion colour blend.

    I’m loving all the patterns as they stand on their own but seeing how well they’re mixed is inspiring.

    I actually really love the use of black and white here – such nice contrast with all the patterns.

    It’s wonderful to see photos originating from a city not often featured. The evolution of your work, Scott, has a joy to follow. The style of your subjects changes and your photographic artistry continues to advance. Location has been the one thing that has stayed fairly consistent, however. It would be great to continue to see regular features of less often traveled parts of the world — small towns and strong urban areas in less traveled countries (e.g. Lagos, Nigeria) — all of these have much to contribute and benefit from your eye beyond the oft featured Paris, Florence, Milan and New York.

    I like the yoke detail….these things are $2 or so at Vogue Fabrics in Evanston, IL. I keep thinking of stocking up because they dress up tops like you wouldn’t believe. (No, I don’t work at Vogue, just an avid shopper.)

      The yoke detail, along with the dark background and mysterious lights, prime this composition for black and white photography…her skin luminous, under the moonlight (“the serious moonlight”).

    She has a great eye. With a few oldish things she has dressed them up and made them magical.

    I love the B&W when it’s obvious it should be colour – it forces me to think what it must have looked like in person but at the same time I think I appreciate a little more the crazy mixture of patterns going on – that are really fabulous. If the photo were in colour, my imagination would not be as engaged. Bravo, Scott.
