Before the street style was even called "street style," there was "The Sartorialist," the popular fashion blog curated and shot by Scott Schuman. Serving up quick-hitting shots of candid street style photography, the fashion set has fallen deeply in love with Schuman's blog since it launched in Sept. 2005. Now, the photographer is making a big move by debuting a brand-new web series for AOL On, "The Sartorialist for AOL On." He had this to say regarding this new career move: "When I'm taking a photograph of someone, I like to create my own image of who this person is. As much as I'd like to say that these photographs are about style, whether it's a guy or a girl, it's really about desire. The clothes just help create that desire."
In the series' debut episode, Schuman hits the streets of Milan to capture his signature stunning fashion and atmospheric shots. Watch the first episode, here.
