She’s got it. Scott, you’ve got it. This young lady has got style without probably even knowing it. You always capture the essence of style, which essentially resides in your attitude, not in what (or who) you’re wearing.
Moving, almost shocking. Wonderfull. A book within these limits would do justice to the photos. Reminds me of Sander & Kertesz, though very different from both. The quietness and tenderness of Kertesz, directness of Sander. Masterpiece.
For a minute i thought I was looking at a vintage 1950s photos of an Italian child. You almost never see street pictures of children alone these days. It’s the times. A parent is lurking in the background, protectively.
Case in point: I’m thinking of a 1940s-1950s pic of a young boy running from the bakery with a French baguette ..and he’s alone. I daresay he and his family lived around the corner…but you wouldn’t let a child do that now. Ever. Sort of sad..the lone child street portrait is quite compelling. Shows him/her as an individual, not just as an extension of a parent or a caretaker adult.
No coy pigeon toed stance here! No self consciousnes shy stance. Just a strong confident women in the making. In comfortable stylish sandals, and that perfect stylish no-nonsense hard haircut and cooling classic summerday dress. She’s ready for a fashioable day in the park of rough and tumble fun and all takers, or a hard day of shopping with Mom.
Anyone that can lean on a lampost like with such apblomb Well,Perhaps we are getting an early peek at a womens weightlifting olympian 2020/2014….or maybe a strong,sensible future Italian Prime Minister.
Confidence is everything!
Appreciate that photo is from back in these crazy days, and it has the advantage of creating such mystery, telling us a different story than if it were from the front.
Love too so much Sott that it is in B&W. Beautifully captures timelessness of the whole scene.
And thanks too for these wonderful streert by street tours you have given us all over, but especially of Milano! Really makes one feel part of your wonderful world!
