People watching is one of my favourite activities and street style bloggers like Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist, Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil and Yvan Rodic of Face Hunter have made a name for themselves documenting the stylish people that they meet on the street. Recenetly, Schuman was the subject of a short documentary that discusses how he captures those fleeting moments of everyday beauty.
One of my favourite lines from the film (and the image it evokes):
“Milan hasn’t changed, Paris hasn’t changed, New York hasn’t changed. So I don’t think [the internet]’s really homogenized but I do think it’s given us what I like to call a digital park bench.”
