For the sake of her 50 year-old self, I hope it was done with a Sharpie. -JB/SF

Blogger J. said ... (6:40 PM) : 

Interesting avenue you're taking here...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:54 PM) :

Nice picture. The tatoo (if that's it) not so much.

Hi!! I´m waiting to see some pictures of Sao Paulo! I really like your work and the ideas you use to give in your blog and I want to see some of my city!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:08 PM) : 

Sao Paulo is not without personality!!! Only good photographers like Scott, can capture the real Sao paulo,not people like u!


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:14 PM) : 

Cheap ATM's -- always in style!


Blogger Deafkid said ... (8:21 PM) : 

Great photograph. I love afternoon sunlight.
That pattern is awesome. More building exteriors should have fun patterns and colours, it would really brighten up the world.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:22 PM) :

Anonymous julien said ... (9:32 PM) : 

Wow, I actually walked right by you as you were taking this picture last week.

I saw the girl turn around right after and look as I passed. Very strange knowing it was you taking that picture!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:52 PM) : 

i am really enjoying the circles on the side


Blogger Daphne said ... (9:52 PM) : 

This photo is so incredible. It's so mysterious. I absolutely love how awkward the framing is. Between two windows. Not really showing any one thing directly, yet showing a very real four feet of the world. I love love love it. This is the kind of photo that inspires a short story.


Anonymous C.W said ... (10:46 PM) : 


Don't know which one is more awesome..
the painted board or
the tattoo writing on her back!

As Leonard Cohen, Canadian poet-singer-songwriter extraordinaire, sang: "there’s music on clinton street all through the evening...." Thank you for capturing some of this mythic street's magic with your lens.


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (11:06 PM) : 

I'm almost as fascinated by the response to the photo as the photo itself. It's interesting to me that the woman in the photo is so judged by what she ornaments her body with in such a harsh way. I think your readership thinks a bit much of itself. You know, in the end we are all pavement my friends. Pavement. Those names might mean more to her than your designer duds will ever mean to you or anyone else.

Thanx for showing us the rest of the world you see. An appropriate response to those who say you stage everything with fashion shoot leftovers.

Blogger diane said ... (12:34 AM) : 

Jeez Scott, It was just as much fun reading everybody's reactions to your photo, as it was to look at it. I love you all over again (in a non-stalker, non-weird kind of way). xo


Blogger makescoffeenervous said ... (12:38 AM) : 

so beautiful, sart! thank you! you made my friday!


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (12:57 AM) : 

You should make more pics like these!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:08 AM) : 

Ditto what Daphne said. I like the juxtaposition between the circles and square shapes, and the depth. Also, I keep looking at the person inside but I'm not sure what I'm seeing.


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:33 AM) : 

this is why i always return to and stay in the lower east side/east village every year...real life.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:45 AM) : 

Vintage Pucci print.



Blogger La chica said ... (3:17 AM) : 

Who's that girl?


Anonymous austintable said ... (3:19 AM) : 

I think one of the best things you captured in this pic Sart, is the dimly lit "I <3 NY" bags on the right side. I also like that the composition is different than most of your photos (and it's unique in and of itself), prob because your not trying to show an outfit - but the change is nice.


Anonymous newyorkDoll said ... (3:37 AM) : 

This is NYC for me.
It's got grit(s).


Blogger Ana said ... (3:44 AM) : 

Great picture!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:21 AM) : 

Fantastic picture - one of the best I've seen in a while. Everything works so perfectly; the colours, the tattoo...


Blogger Hanna Persson said ... (4:25 AM) : 

you always impress me!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 AM) : 

Dear and kind people, please tell an ignorant old-worlder what is ATM? Thank you! I love the colors and am sure the names are her children.


Blogger j'taimee said ... (4:45 AM) : 

This is so real, so tangible. I love the candid, street shot you get - thanks.


Blogger Ashley said ... (5:27 AM) : 

I love this've captured a very different scene!


Blogger Debbie said ... (5:43 AM) : 

Great picture!!


Blogger djaniquinn said ... (6:02 AM) : 

East Village( far east, Ave. C) and L.E.S. still has some of that raw NYC flavor. You captured it well in this photo!
And from reading the comments so far, it seems like people are responding well to this different type of imagery.
Great photograph!


Blogger pretty said ... (6:22 AM) : 

Gorgeous photo


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:38 AM) : 

woooow - i think this is the best photo you've ever posted. not that it's much about fashion but the storytelling and the room it creates for imagination is enormous.


Blogger chula said ... (7:25 AM) : 

really inspiring


Blogger ... said ... (7:30 AM) : 

great photo!

-make your own shoes
-best current model


Blogger Kenyatte said ... (7:49 AM) : 


I love that you're starting to pair your photos with more of your thoughts. You used to do this a lot and then went to photos only. I like knowing what the photographer was thinking.


Blogger Shadan said ... (8:05 AM) :

Never boring. You make my morning.


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (8:51 AM) : 

Great photo! Love it!

And about Sao Paulo... it really depends on where Scott goes, because in some places the people dress all like each other. So Scott, if you want to capture stylish men and women do not stay in the mall!


Blogger David said ... (9:42 AM) : 

great layers.

Absolutely fantastic. thank you for sharing this picture with us


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:44 PM) : 

Very cool...look closely at her back and you can see these weird tan lines amid the tattoos...she rocks...subliminal messages here rival Sgt. Pepper.

Genious is frequently accidental.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:05 PM) : 

Kind of a gritty, never washed, chewing-gum-stuck-under-the-table look that always says NYC to me.
$1 for ATM would really piss me off.


Anonymous Amy said ... (2:56 PM) : 

I want this design on a wall(s) in my it...the circles, not the body art. :)

Gah! I love the LES!


Blogger Austin.Garnett said ... (12:59 PM) : 

Awesome shot of some non-clothing style.

I think the tattoo is cool.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:51 PM) : 

hard core conviction and no one can tell me different on that. the LES in all of its grit is NYC of my heart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:51 PM) : 

reminds me of the photos of famous indian street photographer: raghubir singh.


Anonymous Carol Markel said ... (1:36 PM) : 

The restaurant facade in this photo was painted for the Julie Taymor movie, "Across the Universe." The film used Clinton and Rivington Street for a set. They painted facades and doors up and down the two streets. It's a great movie.


Blogger rollerskatejamms said ... (1:37 AM) : 

Aahh I work on clinton.

Go to 21 Clinton st. on Saturday or Sunday, ask for Zach, tell me who you are, and you get free coffee.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:50 AM) : 

That cheezy I (heart) NY graphic always makes me sad. So much has been lost. But hey, we got tattoos!

Anonymous Cutdrop said ... (10:47 AM) : 

I'm glad you left midtown. The LES is like a refined Brooklyn. I want to see some shots from Williamsburg.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:36 PM) : 

There's a women similar to her around here in Pennsylvania. Only instead of I assume her children's names on her back, she had tats of her children's faces...

Um, yeah. To each their own. Anyway, thanks for sharing this side of New York. It almost pays a nostalgic glance of the LES used to be like.


Blogger Emily said ... (10:36 PM) : 

beautiful photo. I love when you include your less fashion-y photos, as well. You have a unique eye for photography


Blogger Martina Viegas said ... (7:34 AM) : 

I love it.
My new pattern will be inspired in this amazing picture.

Wow. Friedlander in colour ... with attitude!! I LOVE this shot. The fonts, the signage, the light ... seriously one of my favorite photos in so long. (Not just yours .. I'm talking the photography world in general.) I want to hear Danzinger's take on it ...
Did I mention Wow?


Blogger Katherine said ... (7:20 PM) : 

I saw this woman today and almost took a photo as well. A lovely pairing, as she was with her children.
