The Best of The Sartorialist 2013


I love this shot because of how fast it happened, I don’t think I even stopped walking. I had walked up the street on his right side and noticed him as I passed. I kept walking but slowed for a red light at the corner, turned back towards him, and shot just as I started to cross the street. By pure luck he was looking straight at me.


As I walked on, I looked back at him and he was still looking at me but slightly more amused  and confused than before.

    I love this picture! So perfectly candid. This is exactly how I have pictured Paris in my dreams.

    The essence of street photography.

    Candid shots are the best. Makes me nervous, though, for fear the subject will break out in a run after me in offense.

    This picture makes me think of Robert Doisneau’s work. There’s something of the spirit he depicted in his photographs.

    This is the best shot of the year. Black and white makes it timeless.; style make it the subject’s own; composition brings you in.

    You don’t ask people for permission to take, keep and publish their portraits?

    thanks for this timeless shot….could’ve been 70 years ago! My father in law was French and we spent many hours sitting at those metal tables….could have been him.

    thank you!!!! love your art!
