“Take My Picture” is a fantastic mini-documentary, directed by Dasha Zhukova and Andinh Ha. It examines the phenomenon of “peacocking” in the fashion world due to the proliferation of street style blogs.

I could actually see this being part of a feature length documentary about blogging’s affect on our culture, and our desire to document everything. Watch the film below!

    i find it’s always very interesting to see the bi products of the internet generation/ the internet’s rapid growth. the technology that comes about within our lifetime and the ripples it creates in other cultures. i remember when i was a kid i had no idea how to dress so i just tried to emulate people i saw that looked cool around me. but with the tumblr/fashionblog/lookbook generation it’s easy to flip through looks and decide what is popular or trendy. it’s almost like where before the internet it would take a long time with a discerning eye to develop your own style, now you just surf the web pick a look and wear it. cool post jeff!

      ya this is an interesting topic to me as well in terms of the homogenization of culture, style, art, everything is becoming one big giant soup.

    The hunched over photographer’s shuffle is endlessly amusing.

Another fantastic video by New Media Limited for Yeasayer. “Silly Me” is the prequel to “I Am Chemistry”, and both have a wonderfully strange animation style. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
