People Watching as a Career

I’m a big fan of The Sartorialist, a blog depicting ‘real people’ in the streets of New York, Paris and Milan, among other cities around the world. When I look at his photographs I feel like I’m a tourist, people watching while sitting out in a cafe or just walking down a hidden street.

His blog is updated daily and his pictures remind us that you don’t have to wear the latest trend in order to look good and inspire others. Fashion inspiration comes from every corner of the world; from the woman applying lipstick in the neighboring car, to the guy walking next to you, or even a street vendor selling art down your street. And I assure you that if you pay attention to the people around you, you will find it a lot more interesting than a spread in Vogue.

Here’s a video on a day out with Scott Schuman (the Sartorialist himself).

  1. “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadow. Select only things that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: ‘It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.'” -Jim Jarmusch

Leave some Love. Any. I'm not that picky.
