    well, I'm thicker than a straw so it would be a bit harder for her to get to the frappuccino.

    Genteel understatement.

    It's not even really the darker-than-hair skin this guy's rocking, it's the cut-away+fat tie shooting out over his ribcage. On short-neckers like this it just makes them look like wack-a-mole victims.

    I really like the material of the coat, but the short ticket pocket is unnecessary, kind of like the intentionally unbuttoned sleeves.


    Forget what he's wearing. Just the way he appears to be sashaying through the town square is enough to get this guy punched in the leathery area atop his neck.

    I think her pants are really chill. They remind me of Tom Sawyer's description of steamboat passengers' ad-hoc arabian pyjamas. Maybe not as normal streetwear, but bold tribute to historic styles is intriguing to me.

    Has Schuman just gone mad with the saturation dial in his photoshop? My eyes are seriously hurt looking at his photos.

    I think someone here has said this before, that Schuman is nothing more than a guy with a SLR, a type of camera that does most of the work for you, who has a strong hand in dialing up saturation and contrast in photoshop, and takes pictures of people with whom it is their business to dress well, or at least in an attention-grabbing way.

    He's not an amazing photographer by any stretch of the imagination. He's learned how to use the F-stop and, as aforementioned, adjust the contrast and saturation in photoshop. His subjects are often in lifeless poses, or in blatantly contrived "natural" poses.

    And as maomao mentioned, they are the ones dressing up. His entire career essentially consists of enriching himself and becoming famous by publishing other peoples' work.

    Really? I thought his ticket pocket was rather long.

    I don't think Schuman would have initially credited himself with being a 'photographer' per se. Sure, he is in the sense that he 'takes pictures', but he just happens to be a guy with a camera, in locations where people are dressed in attention-grabbing ways. He just documents it. Perhaps he's more of a photojournalist. The saturation thing is something that's got out of hand though. That said, these days, the whole thing has probably gone to his head somewhat and he thinks he practices a fine art...
