After the enormous success of The Sartorialist, Scott Schuman is back with a completely new collection of beautiful images of the men and women who have caught his attention.
His much-loved blog, thesartorialist.com, remains one of the most-read in the fashion world and continues to grow in popularity as Scott travels further and more widely. This book emcompasses the diverse style and visual attitude of people as far afield as Japan, Korea, London, Milan, New York, Paris, and beyond.
In The Sartorialist: Closer, Scott Schuman looks deeper and with great breadth at human style, and the way it is expressed across the world. Always reacting to an inspirational moment, the images in his new book continue to reflect Scott's unique sensibility and vision.
Praise for THE SARTORIALIST:
“[Schuman’s] eye is discerning but it doesn’t discriminate: the quirky, the refined, the interesting, the elegant, the chic and the sometimes outrageous, all show very simply on the street, come together in a visual history of the fashion business, marking our place in the timeline of style . . . chock full of photographs you will want to pore over with friends . . . Make room on your bookshelf.” —The New York Times “The Moment” blog
“At last a selection of Schuman’s best images have been collected in one place. . . . The Sartorialist works as a collection, not just because the photographs look so crisp and beautiful on paper, but also because each pages cuts a window into another world: Schuman’s pictures put fashion in the context of life.” —Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
