The Sartorialist. A Visual Life

Just before the holidays I had the honor of being the subject of a short documentary. They must have worked very fast because the film is already done.
In the film you will see how several of the recent images were made, including the shot of the duct-taped boots.

I just arrived in Korea so I will start posting shots from Seoul soon.

It portrays your work perfectly, it's wonderful to have an insight into your thoughts about fashion. we usually only get the final result, so it's great to see all the thought process and work behind it!

What a fantastic video. The "perspective" reminds me a bit of the Iconoclasts series on Sundance. They should do an episode with you. Your blog has really changed the way street fashion is viewed, and is one of my most favorites.

Many thanks for your daily inspiration!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:35 PM) : 

What I love most about seeing how you work:

You use one lens in this documentary. Over the years of doing photography, I've reduced my equipment to one lens per camera, using the equivalent of a 35mm camera's 28-30mm range. You're right--creativity is often about simplicity, but exploiting it.

In Seoul the area around the Arts University > HONGIK UNIVERSITY

Also in that same area make sure you visit "LOOP" it's an alternative art space, already worth going because of the architecture but also is one of the best for contemporary art shows in Seoul + really interesting people in the area

In Seoul:

The area around the most famous art university > Hongik University

Make sure to visit in the same area Gallery Loop maybe head there first and then walk down to the Hongik University shopping district.
already worth it because of the architecture but interesting looking people around the streets where that is > nice coffee shops too and an around the corner an excellent hot chocolate place.

Very cool and interesting perspective. I don't think many people think in context when we look at photos from 1910 it makes you wonder what people will say about us in another 100 years or so. Anyway wish I had the balls to go take random photos of people like that I ride on the red line in LA and I always see some amazing visuals and people. Maybe someday.


Anonymous Aggie K said ... (1:51 PM) : 

Fascinating! Thanks so much for sharing. I was curious how you use your camera in cold weather. My husband complains that gloves get in the way, fingerless gloves aren't warm enough, etc. I found Under Armour glove liners, and hope they work with the fingerless gloves. He's starting to photograph wildlife, not fashion, though.

Even the light is different in each of those places. Thanks for sharing the view through your lens day after day --

Within months of leaving NYC a few yrs ago I realized how much I missed people watching and found your site...and to see the video as well as your shots is to be reminded how the light dances in the streets of NYC. As for doing the art, the work - "allowing yourself to fall in love a little bit every day" is brilliant. Thanks again Scott.

@ Kevin Denney
My guess (I have the same eyeglasses!) He bought it in a small shop in Milan called "Laboratorio Ottico Marchesi" in Via Solferino (they do not have a website, sigh).

Scott do you confirm?


PS: nice to see "Borotalco" is an international brand in Barbershops in NY ; )

I really enjoyed that. I think I will ALWAYS find it difficult to go up to people and ask if I can take their picture - it's good to see how you do it.

I always look at you photos, like many othe million people, but never comment because I think: what does he care after 278 comments???
But now that I have a blog myself, I realised that every comment is a piece of somebody´s soul trying to touch yours.
Un abrazo desde el corazón.

Amusingly literal at times: the comment about the Internet being a kind of digital park bench is followed by a shot of... a park bench! Good-looking video, though, nice music, and the photos are gorgeous as always--fun to see how they are made.

Thank you for taking time to capture the today...and what people will talk about 100 years from now. Like others, I find your work inspiring on so many levels, without even a hint of the mundane.

Okay, and you've got me, I tried to look up the meaning of Satorialist...what does it mean? Not found in dictionary...


Anonymous hélène said ... (3:27 PM) : 

I found your blog by Garance Doré, and since I go every day!
I am French and not very good in English so I do not read all the time small text!
Good luck, your blog is very good in this whole "blogosphere"!

You have so much soul! It's the ultimate Sartorialist experience this documentary. the moving shot of you leaving the barber shop is beautiful.

Blogger Ksenia said ... (3:31 PM) : 

We want a feature length documentary!!!


Blogger fashion visionary said ... (3:33 PM) : 

You will never fully understand the impact and inspiration you give the world! This was by far one of the best documentaries. I wish someone would do a full feature on you!

thank you again for your endless inspiration!


Anonymous Amanda Wagner said ... (3:35 PM) : 

I always wondered what type of person you were behind the lens. Visiting your blog often and experiencing a piece of you through your photographs builds a fascination for learning about the man who inspires. This Docu is well done.

Does anyone ever say 'no' to you requesting their photo taken?


Anonymous Malin said ... (3:36 PM) : 

You are asome :) I love to watch humans to, but thanks to you i can watch them from NY, and all around the world eventhough I live in this small village in the North of Sweden.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:40 PM) : 

that's amazing! it such a good idea to share with all your followers the way you stop people and aske them to be your subject for one second...I need to find the confidence with myself for doing this too.
what really made me happy is that now I know that I am not the only one who love watching people and everything goes around.
I love the sincerity with whom you work.


Blogger maycart said ... (3:46 PM) : 

This video just made me so happy! I sit on your digital park bench every day.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:46 PM) : 

I check out your blog every single day - I am totally hooked! You are truly inspiring a lot of people to look at how we define fashion and to turn it upside down. A unique view of your visual life which I have enjoyed watching. Look forward to an equally inspiring 2011!
I wish you all the best, Giada
