On the Street......Blue Byrne, Brooklyn

This feels so "Soho circa 1980" to me. A David Byrne/Basquiat moment.

this reminds me of a gucci ss09 casual look for men!!!


Blogger Jamie Jonathan Ball said ... (9:47 AM) : 

theres something beautifully impoverished about this photo..its true that television has other uses.


Blogger Angeles Almuna said ... (9:48 AM) : 

definitely Basquiat!!!!!


Blogger Alicia said ... (9:49 AM) : 

feels pretty awesome to me!
the hair and the fry boots just polish it beyond amazing.
great shot!
I love when you remind me that you're a photographer first, and a fashion person second.
I like you much better that way :)

Can't be beaten... that is a fantastic picture! Great colors and feel. Bravo!


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:00 AM) : 

LOVE this.


Blogger Stefan said ... (10:02 AM) : 

While I agree with the retro feel of the photo, in my opinion, that doesn't make it okay.


Blogger SG said ... (10:04 AM) : 

a beautiful picture.


Anonymous Gabrielle the Nerdling said ... (10:04 AM) : 

gah! the hair! THE HAIR!


Anonymous Jake said ... (10:18 AM) : 

Totally. I actutally thought it was a jumpsuit, at first glance.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:20 AM) : 

Oooo, I'm in love with this whole look! Great hair + monochrome midnight blue + beat up brown boots = perfect.


Blogger jef said ... (10:20 AM) : 

How cheerful.


Blogger SallyO said ... (10:21 AM) : 

My hair looks exactly like that when I wake up in the morning, except it looks good on him. Cool TV!


Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (10:25 AM) : 

Brilliant. A strong look but makes it seem effortless and uncontrived- very stylish. Great photo!


Blogger kayang said ... (10:26 AM) : 

This is great, and the color is so vivid!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:33 AM) : 

Love the blue, and I have identical boots that make me feel like a million bucks whenever I wear them. The boots save it from looking like a uniform.


Anonymous Nicole said ... (10:41 AM) : 

Yes, absolutely 80's and absolutely cool.


Blogger cami falcão said ... (10:55 AM) : 

great portrait.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:04 AM) : 

LOVE those boots!


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

he looks as though he were made to wear that vibrant blue with the mohawk; true style


Blogger The Clever Pup said ... (11:14 AM) : 

Sorry, Sart. He looks like he's in prison garb.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:20 AM) : 

He looks like a person from an Edward Hopper painting...
love the atmosphere.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (11:37 AM) : 

Love the boots! Jorge from WPB


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:08 PM) : 

Really nice boots, somehow despised by fashion people lately - I have a very nice pair and I have heard things about them such as 'too Harley Davidson', 'too gay leather macho-man', 'too 90s tacky'

Welcome them back!


Blogger Philippe said ... (12:11 PM) : 

Another great pix, love it...



Anonymous Hannah W. said ... (1:18 PM) : 

What a beautiful, vibrant blue. He just pops right out of the background! I love the the texture of the bricks behind him as well. They really add something to this shot...a certain je ne sais quoi. I agree with HouseMouse—Fryes really do make you feel like a million bucks!


Blogger pete v said ... (1:41 PM) : 

television man


Blogger Miss Absinthe said ... (2:28 PM) : 

Makes me want to know his story... or to make a groovy one up... striking, beautiful, real.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:10 PM) : 

the hair, not so much for me but what an incredibly handsome face and hands!
the blue is nice too.


Blogger Merve said ... (3:15 PM) : 

true blue describes the season!!


Blogger José Cabral said ... (4:04 PM) : 

impressive Mr. Blue!


Anonymous Carol said ... (4:30 PM) : 

The two pieces in such a strong colour reminded me of prison uniforms.


Blogger DN said ... (5:10 PM) :

Blogger .kubilus. said ... (8:16 PM) : 

def. reminded me of a prison uniform at first glance... love the boots! look like fryes


Anonymous T said ... (8:42 PM) :

Anonymous Tiffany said ... (10:11 PM) : 

Love the blue jumpsuit & love the hair!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:52 PM) : 

Looks like a funky album cover. "Songs in Blue/My TV Don't Work and My Boots is Beat to Hell: What Do I Do Now, Baby?"


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:30 PM) : 

Oh this is just incredible. People like this exist? Must move to Brooklyn.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:05 AM) : 

he's the dude


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:07 AM) : 

shame he's married


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:57 AM) : 

Yes, a beautiful blue on him. I love how he's holding his hands in this photo, very nice hands and ring. The broken-in boots are wonderful too, they would look even better with a little saddle soap and leather polish. :-)

Love these Brooklyn pictures! Keep it real...


Anonymous fashionista said ... (1:06 AM) :

Blogger CAYA F said ... (6:47 AM) : 

This picture makes me smile, and long for New York even more! I really appreciate when pictures tells a story. And this one, I could make a film about :)


Blogger Octavia Morris said ... (11:02 AM) : 

TV splodge perfectly aligned with the head of the mohawk + peacefully crossed hands. feeling that. in fact feeling the whole alignment + all the shapes / colours... this is just beautifully composed... nice one!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:48 PM) : 

I love this photo!


Blogger The Couturier said ... (2:20 PM) : 

great photo! beat up frye boots are definitely unexpected element of his ensemble. dont entirely understand how the neo-expressionist reference comes into play tho (apart from the fact that he looks like a throwback from the 80's)


Blogger junglesiren said ... (2:31 PM) : 

Brother from Another Planet.


Anonymous Scarlett said ... (2:48 PM) : 

he seems to have a sadness about him, despit looking completely confidant
the boots are amazing
and he really reminds me of red in shawshank redemption


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:36 AM) : 

Sucker for bright blue if every I met one, this photographer.

this is so inspiring. capture wise, it's my favourite of yours.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:52 AM) : 

so he's wearing the outfit because he's moving that TV, right?


Blogger underneath said ... (1:18 PM) : 

A singular total look! Spreads joy to the world.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Looks like a prison jumpsuit to me, at least at first glance. And the hair reminds me more of Kid n' Play than of Basquiat, but you got the decade right.


Blogger Untitledstore said ... (7:58 AM) : 

beautiful tone of blue!


Blogger The Cupcake Stand said ... (1:16 AM) : 

reminds me of Johnny Depp in "Cry Baby". In a good way. xoxo.


Blogger kafka said ... (8:17 PM) : 

that's incredible a sudden cry, a shitty teardrop moment. shit this one woke up some feelings i wasn't aware of.

you should share that one with the psychology department.

i would love to try to explain my feelings right now, if i could speak better english


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:01 AM) : 

Great shot! I love how the broken part of the TV screen almost mimics the shape of his hair. Bravo!
