Photography by Tommy Ton for style.com
I very seldom visit streetstyle blogs anymore, mostly because I think they've all gotten too polished and synthetic these last couple of years. I remember loving to check out Stockholm Streetstyle et al when they first started up, but now it's like they don't even shoot people on the street anymore. I mean; what I liked about street style photography was getting inspiration from others like me, to see what they did with their clothes and style. Now it's all about the models/editors/stylists propped up outside the fashion shows, which makes it less "real" for me I guess. The only street style photographer that still inspire me with his photos is Tommy Ton, because he manages to keep it interesting. I might be imaginging this, but I feel like he cares about what the clothing he's shooting says about the person wearing them, and I like that intimacy. What do you guys think?
