love the contrast of the black outfit and the yellow/pink roses. it tells a story.


Anonymous cigalechanta said ... (10:32 AM) : 

What an interesting face. Is he French. The tulpis make you look at his black outfit. Nice!


Blogger we could grow up together said ... (10:38 AM) : 

roses still in plastic wrap sticking out from a backpack. that is gonna be an inspiration for my shoot. genius!


Anonymous Soph said ... (10:51 AM) : 

simply sexy.


Blogger Gabriela said ... (11:03 AM) : 

That layering all in black is quite interesting; he dresses like guys in film school do.

I like the role those roses play in such a tough and dramatic outfit: the fact that he is carrying them with such a serious expression makes me think of all the possible unobvious reasons for one to carry such a bouquet.


Blogger Rita said ... (11:14 AM) : 

This is a very romantic shot... for many reasons.
I love the contrast between the bright-colored flowers and the overall dullness in the atmosphere.

i absolutely love it!


Blogger LN said ... (11:53 AM) : 

this guy is gorgeous!! J'adore sa coiffure!!

thats sexy


Blogger meg said ... (12:17 PM) : 

i love it!! i'm dying to know who the flowers are for..


Blogger Lacey @ The Road is Life said ... (12:17 PM) : 

this pic is stunning. I love the look on his face, his posture, the black clothes, the rainy streets-- all things melancholy -- and then subtle burst of colorful joy sneaking out of his bag-- oh this is winter!!!


Anonymous Ali said ... (12:25 PM) : 

Unreal. Simply unreal.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:34 PM) : 

I don't really go for this type of look, but I think it achieves what it aims for really well. Skinny, short jeans, somewhat off kilter but nice hair, long's all of a Joy Division piece.

Love the hair very much - and the carelessness with which he carries the flowers.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:30 PM) : 

Just where & how do you run into these people???? Visually very inspiring image and vibe captured here! Great!

Blogger lila-lina said ... (2:20 PM) : 

wow, first thought was that he reminds me of a very stylish grenouille ;)

lovely contrast between his clothing and the flowers.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:55 PM) : 

love the contrast, I wonder who they're for?


Anonymous Ursula von Haubitz said ... (3:02 PM) : 

perfect. he must be a model, right?

Anonymous Minx said ... (3:31 PM) : 

So even the Ian Curtis wannabes of Paris buy their girlfriends flowers from the local garage?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:23 PM) : 

those flowers really add a nice touch to the picture..well done!

Makes me wonder whom the flowers are for. Maybe he has a date? That's so cute...

I also like his jacket and shoes.


Blogger marya said ... (4:48 PM) : 

can bring those floers to me puh-lease!

Anonymous spitshine said ... (5:05 PM) : 

what a remarkable photo. the roses providing the juxtaposed color focus brushed almost imperceptibly by that peek of argyle in his sock...what a face.


Blogger Peter said ... (5:08 PM) : 

I like the bag a lot, does anyone know where to get it?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:31 PM) :

first to comment!
i love the whole like layout. his all black outfit with the yellow roses with the orange fringe tint. beautiful... i love his coat too!


Blogger ilovesecondhandsmoke said ... (5:59 PM) : 

All-black outfits are my favorite. From the cap to the backpack, to the shoes, all black!


Blogger Nathaly said ... (6:09 PM) : 

Aw. Roses for me? He shouldn't have!


Blogger K. Eliot Fung said ... (6:26 PM) : 

written out like a dream


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:47 PM) : 

those are my very favorite roses. why so glum??


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:25 PM) : 

Does every kid in Paris look like a model? Black accented by roses! I *think* I can do this look except that I can never fit in those new skinny jeans. I like the shoes too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:37 PM) : 

Oh, Sart! How this photo captures such a duality! With the head-to-toe black and that expression and yet the contrasting roses in the bag. I don't think you could have planned a more poignant photo. Bravo!


Blogger Alice Lancaster said ... (11:39 PM) : 

what a beautiful and intriguing shot. the flowers really pop in contrast to the all black ensemble. i wonder who's getting those flowers.


Blogger citizen said ... (12:59 AM) : 

Very intriguing. I wonder who he bought the flowers for. I like how he seems to have stuffed them almost absentmindedly into his bag.


Anonymous Auntie Naka said ... (2:19 AM) : 

I love this photo! It's amazing how one captured moment can tell such a story. If I lived near one of your galleries I would buy this!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:34 AM) : 

He must be a model. This shot looks like an Ad campaign for a fashio house, and wouldn't said fashion house be lucky to have such a photo as their campaign. Gorgeous Sart, your genius is starting to overflow.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:07 AM) : 

this shot is ridiculously romantic; the slippery, dirty street and the stark light of the sky... not to mention that face which anchors it all.

it's more than enough to make a girl fall in love.


Blogger Victim said ... (9:49 AM) : 

He's English, his name is Lee and he's a menswear student at Saint Martins


Anonymous Post-it up said ... (5:53 PM) : 

good to see the return of the classic ruck sack. But would it look as good weighing heavy on his back? Never a good look, right?


Blogger Phineas said ... (7:31 PM) : 

This shot, Sart, is beyond wonderful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:58 PM) : 

More people should buy flowers more often. It's very charming and it would make everyone that much happier.



Anonymous gina said ... (8:38 PM) : 

Good gods, man; this is genius. Every time I look at your blog, I feel lucky that we have this opportunity to see your work, and through it, the opportunity to see so many amazing people and memorable scenes.


Blogger ellastica said ... (3:17 AM) : 

the roses make the shot!


Blogger snc said ... (10:21 AM) : 

The composition of this photo is breathtaking. The wall even compliments his hair, and the roses poking out are so charming. Truly one of my favourites.


Blogger Mitchell said ... (11:17 AM) : 

This photograph is sublime.


Blogger PLATFORM said ... (12:54 PM) : 

This is the kind of guy who (possibly) got dressed in the morning, and didn't really have the intention of being "stylist", but still succeeded effortlessly. And the flowers...they definitely add.


Anonymous Sam Besi said ... (3:22 PM) : 

haircut: funny. youngsters can do that.
Black clothes: boring. Honestly.
Like my neighbor, the undertaker´s son....
Roses: maybe for his grandma.

In fact, I´m not that enthusiastic about this foto.


Blogger The Boston Foodie said ... (9:26 PM) : 

Another great find, great look and great shot. It so makes me want to go back to Paris! They pay so much more attention to all of the details of their fashion.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:11 PM) : 

this is a beautiful picture. I think everyone above has nailed it dead on. the black, sleek silhouette, and the sorrow, suttle emotion on his face, is really contrasted with humour with the flowers out of his bag. This man looks like a model you would see on a Dior Homme runway.


Blogger Secret Diary said ... (12:26 PM) : 

Sart- this pic is perfect in every way. really.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:06 AM) : 

As always, lovely photograph of a beautiful person with a flawless style. It is interesting, however, to see this posted on the same day as the NY Times article on on the new silhouette for male models. Hopefully this trend will not have the same devastating results for male models as the demand for frailty among female models has.


Blogger Paul Pincus said ... (4:49 PM) : 

Great portrait. Love everything here. Very cool!


Blogger savvylondon said ... (8:09 PM) : 

many kids in paris do look like models. combination of good taste and those genes. he looks like a french ian curtis.


Anonymous mint said ... (9:53 PM) : 

wow. everything in this picture is sad and depressing except for the flowers. they're happy.

this could be a great start of a romance comedy. a depress guy looking for love. he bought a banquet of flowers in hope of finding love. he walked around the streets and search for the perfect the end of the day before the flower dies he accidently saved a beautiful swedish girl's life. he gave her the flower and she kissed him.

-the end-


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:41 PM) : 

This look makes me happy. After seeing "Control" I wondered why more boys in the U.S. didn't copy Ian Curtis's style. You really have to have a brooding, beautiful face like this boy to pull it off, though.


Anonymous JLala said ... (2:30 PM) : 

I really like the dark clothing with the use of multiple colors such as the flowers. It's an interesting concept to have flowers in the backpack. It shows that no matter how dark one can seem, they still have a heart and meaning on the inside.

Your photography have opened up my eyes to those around me. Before I would just think 'Oh, love her look' now I look more closely to why I like it. Thanks for the inspiration.

this is a beautiful photograph.

This is perhaps one of my all time favourite pictures.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:50 PM) : 

He is my idea of the cliched perfect French romantic.

This is a smart boy.And I love the contrast of the black outfit and the yellow/pink roses in their bag.But perhaps Its looking sad.
