    You’ve been showing several pictures lately of people with their backs turned towards the camera. The cyclist, the girl turned into the corner, the woman getting photographed by the friend, and now this.

    What’s up? This could be a fun collection to together.

  2. This is Belgium

    wouldn’t this have been a marvelous shot if that cigarette was not in it?
    or to the contrary…
    what do you all think?

    He looks smelly! But yet…attractive. Something only guys with inherent style can pull off. And this is just from seeing the back of him. (except yucky for smoking)

    A timeless rock ‘n’ roll look. Could have been taken in any of the past four decades.

    It is fascinatin howfew garments it take, with fairly small amounts of fabric, to give a strong impression of personal style.

    The fit of the denim trousers, and the white canvas sneakers does the work, tied together by the white top.

    Not my style, but cool, simple and in some way very I-don’t-give-a-shit british late 70′s punkrocker.

    loving the fit of that tank-top – though it does appear to be inside out. the jeans are fantastic and no doubt have been a close companion of this guy for a quite some time! wonder what he looks like?

    With that cut-off tee shirt and spiked hair he reminds me of Richard Hell…”Down at the Rock and Roll Club”.

    Interesting..No doubt. I know he has his back to us, but I’m getting a modern James Dean vibe here.

    Now that’s what you call a “lived-in” look. My gosh, you can even see the imprint of his cell phone in his back pocket.

    This photo reminds me of West Side Story, one of my favorite movies. He vould be a Jet, of course !

    Too cool for school. This is the sort of guy I would have been in love with when I was 23. Also, why do people get bent out of shape over cigarettes in shots like this?

  54. *sP

    May 16, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    it’s an “all american” look. the bluejeans, white tee, and converse – low-brow, high-brow, traditional, punk, rock, c&w, hardcore, even none of those at all…. it’s a timeless look and i’m loving it here!

    (And cut-up t-shirts are the best thing ever in the summer. I have a few shirts waiting impatiently to be de-sleeved so they can hit the streets…)

    Brilliant contrasts – halo of hair but spiked; clean white Tshirt but inside out; one cuff neat and other rumpled; white Converse with grubby soles; ambiguous religious references (SAINT JEROME – FORGIVE) and gritty urban graffiti; cleaned-off blackboard and cluttered signature marks in paint on wall – lots of horizontals and verticals with a diagonal tilt to the composition; action revealed and concealed.

    Very cool and natural look. Though I’m really tired of reading comments of people complaining about the cigarette. Ok it’s unhealthy and I’m sure he’s aware of that. Just like we are all aware that drinking alcohol or eating meat every day, or practicing no sport, etc, are bad for health too.

    Anyway, I totaly agree about the fact that this guy is a Jet ! Love it.

    To Lydia and Gary: We get “bent out of shape” over pictures of people smoking because IT’S DISGUSTING. And we get to keep commenting about it as long as Scott puts up pics of people smoking. There’s nothing cool about it. The health issues that Gary points out are real – the cost to society and the health system enormous. When will people stop this horrible habit!

    Indeed, this is a very timeless look. This picture could be 40 years old. It is also a very international photo – could as well be London/Berlin/Amsterdam. I love the whole atmosphere of the photo, the background graffiti (really? St Jerome – Forgive?) and I respect his “I don’t give a sh*t” attitude.
    And btw, a great idea here not to show the face – more mystery for us readers.

  114. FredericPhilippe

    June 8, 2012 at 4:41 am

    this is a fantastic example of how style is something which you carry inside, something that can be instinctive. this guy probably woke up after night of heavy partying, bringing out his baquiat spirit on the street, and still managing to look great&sexy&stylish&”fresh” with his inside-out tee and muddy sneakers. grungy, artsy and chic at the same time. BRAVO!

    p.s. reminds me of me so mucb!
