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, and includes nearly forty exclusive images.
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.
This limited-edition hardcover features a gorgeous slipcover, colored endpapers, and sewn pages and is individually numbered.
Scott Schuman started The Sartorialist simply to share photos of people on the street that he thought looked great. The blog now receives more than 14 million page views per month. His work resides in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and has been featured in GQ, Vogue Italia, Vogue Paris, and Interview. He lives in New York City with fellow style blogger Garance Doré, with whom he was awarded the CFDA Media Award in 2012.
“Scott’s quest on the sidewalks of the world is like a gold miner sifting gravel for the rare pebbles of gold. Global fashion takes on new meaning through his work: as his subjects confirm, compelling personal style knows no boundaries!”—Harold Koda, Metropolitan Museum of Art
“Photographer? Journalist? Blogger? No. Just Mr. Schuman, The Sartorialist. The one off in the fashion world. The only point of view through which you can “read” the street style.”—Franca Sozzani, Editor, Vogue Italia
