If there was ever a day to look spiffy at Wellesley College, it would be Monday, Dec. 10.
Scott Schuman, the founder of fashion blog The Sartorialist, will be visiting the college to talk about his own street-style photography in relation to the history of photography, currently portrayed in the Davis Museum’s current exhibition, “A Generous Medium.”
Schuman started The Sartorialist “with the idea of creating a two-way dialogue about the world of fashion and its relationship to daily life,” according to the bio page on his website.
His work has been featured in GQ, Vogue Italia, Vogue Paris, and Interview. He’s shot ad campaigns for Nespresso, DKNY Jeans, Grant, OVS, Crate & Barrel, and Absolut, and Burberry commissioned him to shoot “Art of the Trench,” a groundbreaking social media-cum-advertising project, according to his site.
An anthology of his images, published by Penguin in 2009, sold over 100,000 copies. His work is featured in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, according to his site.
He’ll be speaking on Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. in the Wellesley College Alumnae Hall Auditorium at 106 Central Street. The event is free and open to the public.
