The Sartorialist + Amy Arbus Talk at The Strand!!!


Finally I get a chance to introduce my audience to Amy Arbus, a woman whose book “On the Street”, is made up of a collection of images she took for The Village Voice, from 1980 to 1990. She shot street style before it was called “street style.”


Even though her choice of subject and style of photography is very different from mine, I’ve always found it very inspiring and it helps me to understand how I want people to look at my images both today and 10, 20, & 30 years into the future.


So please join us at The Strand to hear Amy and myself discuss  fashion, photography, and street style, over the last 30 years.


Event Details:


Rare Book Room (3rd Floor)

828 Broadway

New York, NY 10003

Next WEDNESDAY May 25th 7-8pm

    I am not familiar with her work. Although I just her mom’s exhibition (Diane Arbus) here in Toronto a while back. It was great!

    I’ve always admired the street work of Amy Arbus and can see echoes of it in your work. Engaging people on the street, strangers and passersby, that’s so far from my comfort zone with a camera that I can’t quite image how the images are made.

    If I were closer it would be great to attend the event and hear the two of you talk about your work.

    Perhaps there will be a recording or video on YouTube?

    Madonna looks like an angel.

      An angel unaware of the existence of the benefits of dry-cleaning ,even if she had no ironing skills, for coats.Her “mamma” would agree with me…despite the obvious socio- iconic value of the caption in terms of urban history.

    of course she’s inspiring, and a stand up for her mother Diane.

    I love the young Madonna! Her songs of that time were my favorites.

    Really nice review of the On The Street. I think I need to add this to my reading list. I loved the Village in NYC.
