I wonder how many of the people you photograph know of your blog? They almost all look very comfortable in front of the camera. Do you take a lot of photos of a person, I wonder, and choose the most flattering?
My god, for a moment I thought that was Alessandro Mendini, unshaven.
After the title but before the page had loaded past his nose I could hear the Salone. In my experience, there is always such a marked difference between the clothing paradigms of product or interior designers and the fashionista, garmento or simply clothing oriented crowd. Generally, only product and interior designers are seen wearing colors, materials or fabrics you may have only associated with window coverings or the latest whimsical kitchen appliances. Look around at the next gift show or industrial design event, I very nearly guarantee you’ll see someone wearing a garment made from fabric possibly intended for an armchair.
to Anon 6:17 i think people look comfortable because i work quickly before they have a chance to tense up. before i stop them i pretty much have the shot laid out in mind head and the dials set on the camera so i take three or four shots and done.
I like his style, which makes me think that in his previous life he has been living in India. His glasses are fun and so much more valuable than any fashionable latest this season frames. Perhaps he bought them from a skiing resort 10 years ago. See you again in India, next time!
I think this might be a western interpretation of the Gandhi look – round glasses, shaven head, lots of white linen. Except he’s probably an architect or something rather than an inspirational political figure….
This is the perfect example of why I love linen suits. Linen is meant to look this way. It has its own look which speaks to itself in a flaunting way. It says I’m linen, I know I look like this, this is the way linen is meant to look. You shouldn’t ask linen to look like polyesther and never show a wrinkle. That’s not linen’s personality. Let the cloth speak for itself. I think it’s great!
