Amazing attention to detail. I like her suitcase as a little world of art. I think she is selling postcards/paintings, but I can’t be sure. The richness of the tattoo against the skirt is wonderful, as is the dynamism of her pose.
For me, her tattoo is the thing that stands out the most in this picture. I really love shots of tattooed people on this blog, men and women alike, because I think they possess such a mix of sophistication and utter coolness that draws me, and I assume a lot of other people, in the most. Keep it up! :)
Love the other little details as well, like the paintbrush and the headscarf.
This is the same artist that you photographed before, with the red flower in her hair, no? I recognize the paintbrush in her hair and the blue in her box from the blue in her book from the earlier photo. She is a dangerous combination of badass beautiful cool.
I saw the previous photo of her. I can’t decide between impressions. One the one hand, she could be a true artist with an individual sense of style (though, please enough with the brushes in the hair), on the other hand, she could be an Italian fauxhemian/trustafarian bankrolled by wealthy parents, not unlike the insufferable hipsters here NYC. Either way, thought provoking. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a diehard Sartorialist fan (it’s my homepage), but also a NYer and not one to fawn over every post. And please, can we find more apt praise than “amazing”? Are fashion fans really so linguistically lazy?
Very gipsy! she seems disinterested in fashion and in looking sophisticated, but actually she is paying big attention to details: the pattern of the skirt and of the headscarf, which is the same, the gipsy but very up-do-date earrings, the tatoo and the perfect make up.
Scott, is it a staged photo? Coz if not, you’re a real magician, who knows how to anticipante and capture an instant of grace. Bravo! And there’s always something special with italians you shot : more than stylish they are graceful, so beautiful… I can feel la dolce vita !
She is so charming ! And she puts her dreams in the street (sorry for the english) maybe i could say better = she is not afraid to open her heart dream and show it ! This suitcase is so intimate, secret dreams …
