Sartorialist #1 - Earl Schuman

My Father passed away last week.

I won't try to write about what he meant to me, because I am not a good enough writer to express that level of sentiment. He was simply the single most influential figure in my life. Even though everyone has always said,  "you're just like your Dad," I never really tried to follow in his footsteps. He gave me that freedom very openly. However, he was a writer, director, producer and occasional on-screen talent - and guess what, I somehow ended up doing most of the same things.  

While going through old photographs last week I found a set of images from around 1964 or 1965. My Dad had an assignment to report on the movie projects that were currently filming all over Europe. He was to interview the big stars of the day and produce small segments for the local Florida TV station. I have always thought of my Dad as more of a writer than director so it was so surprising to see snaps of him with a movie camera in his hand looking absolutely chic - in a lot of the same places that I now visit.

Here is my Dad (wearing the sunglasses and some very early Prada) on the set of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum."

Here he is in the foothills of Rome. I don't know which movie he was covering there, but I do remember him telling me that while on the set of "Doctor Zhivago" he lost his camera in a huge drift of fake snow.

Here he is arriving in Madrid.

OK, that is enough with the old family photos.

My Dad was the #1 fan of this blog. Everyday he looked at the new posts and would read every comment.

However, my dad wasn't a blind cheerleader. When he felt I wasn't living up to my potential he let me know it, in no uncertain terms. I thank him for that.

Finally, I would like to thank my two sisters and my Mom. They were the perfect team to go through this with. I learned something new about the strength of each one of them, and about the depth of love that a family can have for one another. Thank you.

In keeping with my Dad's tradition of exotic, chic travel, I am off to Australia tonight. I will report from Melbourne and Sydney. If I get a sign-off soon I will also visit Sao Paulo this month.

I visit the blog to appreciate the pictures often. And I value the cultural implications of your endeavor. Such dedication to the aesthetic experience is seldom in contemporary contexts. I am expressing these thoughts to you but to the sense of aesthetic that your father instilled in you implicitly as well. It is one of his gifts to you that will keep thriving. I express my condolences to you and celebrate the parts of him that are still alive within you.

Here's a poem that always helps me after the loss of a loved one:

When I die, I want your hands on my eyes: I want the light and wheat of your beloved hands To pass their freshness over me once more:I want to feel the softness that changed my destiny.

I want you to live while I wait for you, asleep, I want your ears still to hear the wind, I want you to sniff the sea's aroma that we loved together, to continue to walk on the sand we walked on.

I want what I love to continue to live, And you whom I love and sang above everything else To continue to flourish, full flowered:

So that you can reach everything my love directs you to, So that my shadow can travel along in your hair,
So that everything can learn the reason for my song!

-Pablo Neuruda

My father was a globe-trotter too. It's the part of him I channel, even though I did not get to know him well. It is the part of me I know comes from him.

When I was a little girl he took us from New York to live in Sao Paulo. Brazil is now one of my greatest inspirations. A troubled, wonderful country. Maybe something like my father, I think.

Anyway, have a great time in "Sampa"! It's a fabulous town, even though it ranks as one of the world's least attractive -- on the surface.

My deepest condolences. My father passed away last year and I too went through his archive of photographs (he was a photographer as well). Discovering the part of his life before he had a family. It was an extremely cathartic process. Your father's photos are beautiful, a wonderful tribute. Thank you for sharing.

Please accept my condolences. I know the feeling: my mother died six weeks ago. There is the sadness but those beautiful images of your dad are about life and joy.
Bon voyage!

Blogger BobKentNoVa said ... (1:10 PM) : 

Scott, I'm sorry for your loss. I lost my father at age 28. It sounds like your relationship with your father parallels mine with my father. I found that as time passed that my father was still alive and a force in the lives of those who knew him best... myself included. I suspect you will have the same experience.

Sorry for your loss. I lost my father December 2008 and it leaves a hole that can never be filled. Keep up your great work, as your Dad would wish and inspired you to do.

i'm so sorry for your loss. i just lost my father as well and i know how hard it is.

i absolutely love your pictures and it's so nice that your father appreciated them too.


Blogger Monica M. Williams said ... (1:38 PM) : 

Everything you do now expresses how much your father meant to you. I'm a mother now; yesterday when someone asked my son what he wanted to do when he grew up, he said, "Make magazines, like Mommy." Of course, he may do something entirely different, but I was so proud and felt so close to him for even entertaining the thought. Your father must have thoroughly enjoyed your work and talent because I'm sure it's something he would have done himself.

I'm sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself and your family.
