    Scott/ Garance,

    Congratulations on being CFDA honorees. It was interesting to read about the different and unique ways you and Garance approach photography and the subjects of your art. We love it both ways.

    This is a very interesting read, thx for sharing. The story with the Russian girls is sad and funny at the same time.

    The comment about the Russian girls was really sad. It showed intolerance on Scott’s part. Someone should remind him that the cold war is over.

    would you mind publishing the whole picture of Garance too? She’s beautiful!

    I am very puzzled when you say “I am interested in asbtract person” … does it mean you don’t mind about people ? Kind of impermanence time ? Otherwise I appreciate your alertness and open-ness (maybe these words do not exist) with “hasard” ! It’s such a way of being “here and now”, alive meditation. i wonder if you ask people before shooting.

    what a great interview….you certainly have paved the way and inspired many….CFDA is correct in honouring you….

  27. Professoressa

    May 26, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Very provocative.

    After I finish a shoot by the water, I am going to meet up with my partner and hopefully photograph him. He is a very reluctant model, but our own family album needs some attention. He is my weekend inspiration.

    A very interesting interview!! I am glad to see your views on true styling beyond the fashion world and the shows and it shows on your blog. Many “street style” have emerged since yours, but you are on of the few that still truly shot ” street style”,even though you don’t like the term. Your pictures are never blank. There is a true feeling behind each shot. Keep hunting for us! Congratulations for the award!

    scott and garance
    this will be one of the many posts of congrats you’ll be reading about your unique blogging style.because you are unique.and i read your interview and i’m so surprised especially about the part of the “girls that want/intend to be photographed”.
    Like garance i’m a normal girl who studies visual arts and works.. everyday i see people worth to be’s all about their personality-they create a spontaneous look that is just looking right/great. and that’s one of the feelings i get from your photographs.
    thank you both a lot for you work…
    ps:it wouldn’t be bad AT ALL in the future if you would lecture about your work around europe..

    May 26, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    Your work ethic is an inspiration.

    @if Jane, you’re confusing Russia with the Soviet Union. I grew up during the Cold War. There’s a HUGE difference. Scott’s Russian girls comment isn’t intolerant in any ethnic sort of way; he’s referring to the Russian girls associated with the nouveau riche Russian oil oligarchs: People whose parents waited on lines for bread and toilet paper. And now they have a dizzying amount of money.

    Just discovered your blog today thanks to the article in G.Q. (havn’t finished reading that yet since I have been Here all day!) and I loved the interview with you and yor wife. You have inspired me to keep that rhinestone brooch on my lapel and to express my personal style wearing what I love and know works for me. Thank you!

  38. Erina

    May 27, 2012 at 1:11 am

    @Monsieur Marcel
    Totally agree with you. I could say even more. Russian (especially Moscow’s society) now is really obsessed with fashion, and exactly about being “a fashion star”.
    So those girls, to whom refer Scott, may be not even “nouveau riche” girl, but just “wanna-be” ones.
    I know some stories, when just usual office clerks took a days-off at work on time of Milano or Paris FW, just to go over there and hang around shows places.
    Of course, nothing wrong with that, but hell, they are trying to hard to take photographers attention.

    How funny to read words from you. I really got used to thinking about your work via your photos only, but it’s wonderful to get a few explicit insights too.

    Every morning I have my coffee and read the news then look at both your blogs. EVERY morning. You’re that important (and usually the counterbalance to all the bad news).

    This is one of my fave interviews you’ve done. Good job!

    May 28, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    This was a great interview.
    Although I have sensed you warm attitude towards random people in streets it was nice to read about it too. You have such a great eye for style! And your pictures are full of beauty. Thank you and congratulations!
    Your work has been a great inspiration to me together with another street style blog Hel-Looks. From these inspirations has become my blog Flash For Zonzon, including for example illustrated street style looks from Helsinki.

    You and Garance are such an inspiration to me. I think you two capture whats most important in life on your photos: the feeling of happiness and freedom that we see in people that love who they are.

  71. Della

    May 28, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    I very much adore your blog.

    But in the interview, it wouldn’t be fair to point out just Russian girls doing that as a generalisation.

    Such remark from you is very much disturbing in it’s generalising. I always had impression that your vision is not constrained by generalising.

    May 29, 2012 at 2:52 am

    @ Monsieur Marcel–I too see your point, and I must say that Mr. Schuman’s comment would have raised fewer hackles & sounded less like a sloppy generalization if he had made the point as carefully and specifically as you did.

    @ une chatte grise, in all fairness to Scott, media interviews are a slippery slope to navigate. And no one knew this better than Andy Warhol. I recommend this book:

    Scott looks like what he is. Intense, thats why his stuff is so good. He isn’t light hearted like Garance, which is why I like him better. Of course they are both wonderful, and stronger together then separately. But I prefer his work. I don’t really care for commentary anyhow.
