2012 in Review: Close Up


Houston Street, New York | 16:44

Simbarashe spends an immense amount of time observing and focusing on the central subject of his photos and edits them daily. In New York we may ride the train with or pass a person on street almost everyday, but we never actually see them. Simbarashe, on the other hand, can, even after meeting them just once or by having snapped them as they walk across the street.

Close up shots go beyond the details and accessories of an ensemble and highlight the individual. Faces give life to a style, and these are a few of my favorite.
