Blogger Old Aunt Amy said ... (6:28 PM) : 

This is a beautiful image and yours is a delightful blog. I've often pondered the same about the Prada dominance (I believe it's in the October archives?) and its sneaky dismantling of its competition. Glad I'm not alone.

i like that he first looks a little unkempt, and then you see that sharp crease in his pants.

 

Anonymous Rachel said ... (6:14 PM) : 

He/this shot breaks my heart!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:39 AM) : 

This shot reminds me of a girl in my grade, she has the same body language as the man. Always got this look in her face and yeah she is alone in the crowd, just like the man in the shot. Amazing shot. I am amazed by the way you have captured the body language of that man in a single shot.

 

Anonymous jaygatz said ... (6:55 AM) : 

I'm always amazed at how a talented photographer such as yourself, manages to capture a frame like this without first drawing attention to himself or making the subject of the photo aware, and therefore self-conscious, that the shot is being taken.
A heartbreaking photo indeed.

This is truly one of the most intelligent photos I have ever seen. It's beatutiful. It really opens the mind and forces it to wonder about who this man is, and where is he going. I love it.

i just started reading your blog and i love what you are doing. this is easily the best picture i have ever seen. never before have my eyes begun to tear at the sight of a stranger. your fantastic

 

Blogger Stacie said ... (1:55 PM) : 

This photo and the words you wrote just broke my heart in the most beautiful of ways. Nice reminder that the human condition is what matters most, not the rat race.

Amazing how the camera captures what we usually choose to ignore on a daily basis. Love your shots!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:08 PM) : 

i adore this picture

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:15 PM) : 

very Henry Cartier Bresson! Brilliant!

 

Blogger Dexter Obvious said ... (9:36 PM) : 

This shot is brilliant. It feels cold and desperate, and I love that.
I check everyday for your newest fashion photos and eat them up with a spoon, but I find that you have such a delicious talent for candid portrait photography as well. How do you get people to allow you to take their pictures without them posing? I am always trying to improve my candid shots, but find that people are terrified to allow me to photograph them. They always either freeze up and look unnatural, or immediately strike their typical pose rather than being themselves. It's really discouraging.
You have so many close candid shots of people that I can't believe they didn't see you. Do you ask them for permission first? Do you give them directions so they know what you want?

 

Blogger HappyCamper said ... (11:24 PM) : 

I love the shadows in the photo and that desperately clutched hand. Magnificent!

 

Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (10:37 PM) : 

this one is really nice.

 

Blogger trudatnyc said ... (11:55 PM) : 

i've seen this man a lot. he crosses the campus at columbia every morning.

 

Blogger monika said ... (7:13 AM) : 

This could be the beginning of a fascinating story....

 

Blogger Pursuing Perfection in Details said ... (2:14 PM) : 

This brought tears to my eyes.

 

Blogger Alisa said ... (8:24 PM) : 

I'm going to repeat what others have said: this brought tears to my eyes.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:08 PM) : 

To be alone and chilly means he is heading for home?

 

Anonymous Victoria Karkoulas said ... (8:48 PM) : 

I rarely come across a photograph that really touches me...this most definitely has. It is spectacular & devastating. The feelings evoked by looking @ this are of pure sadness he is huddled and looks so frail. You cant help by being absolutely heartbroken by just glancing @ this photo.

Your work is miraculous.

 

Blogger Zixiao said ... (7:16 PM) : 

this is really sad

 

Blogger GPtuners said ... (11:14 PM) : 

spectacular and heartbreaking indeed. thank you for reminding me of why it is so important to be kind in my heart and to the strangers who are passing through.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:14 PM) : 

Amazing photo, but Scott, you really need to spellcheck yourself.

 

Anonymous Angela said ... (12:39 AM) : 

After reading (or I guess mostly looking) through your book, I am delighted to go every morning on your website. This picture shows so much of not only a man's outer style, but his internal persona as well. You've told a man's life story in the blink of an eye(or camera shutter) Bravo!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:02 PM) : 

i feel sad for him..

 

Blogger MissHazelEyes said ... (9:05 PM) : 

yes, alone in a crowd.

 

Blogger Morti Viventi said ... (11:56 AM) : 

Amazing Photo!
And yes...we're all alone in the crowd...
Love your blog, you're a big inspiration, thank you.

 

Blogger Megan said ... (10:46 PM) : 

Wow, i had to stop and comment on this one. Absolutely touching photography. I would blow it up and frame it in my house if it i could get a clearness to it. This is so thought provoking and sad! True art

 

Anonymous Melissa said ... (9:22 AM) : 

He could be the forlorn, fragile and forgotten version of the spectacular actor Yul Brynner (1920-1985). Yul's acting style conveyed the opposite.

Blogger 沈澱到最後一根骨頭 said ... (4:45 PM) : 

I hope there are more photos like this. Even though I know this is a fashion blog, but I really like it when you put photos with potential social commentary in this blog as well.

 

Blogger Stella said ... (7:23 AM) : 

It shakes my heart.
Love it

 

Anonymous ken hill said ... (11:08 PM) : 

What a powerful quote and such a great photo.

 

Anonymous Escort Manchester said ... (12:51 PM) : 

A really good photo.

 

Blogger The Continuous Life said ... (11:45 AM) :
