“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.

  • I LOVE THIS FILM
