Street Sartorialist photography

Though the last few postings might give that impression, this blog is not converting itself into another Sartorialist ersatz. Don't worry, it is not. Yet Paris is also about fashion and glamour, and therefore represent a theme I like to include in my pictures.

As you might know, the Sartorialist hunt the streets, in search of fashion. Candidness and composition are often secondary to his approach, it is above all about what the person wear, not what she/he expresses or how she/he interacts with others. This is quite the opposite in street photography as these elements are key. This led me to think how a style combining both approaches would be great, though I am sure, extremely challenging to achieve consistently.
