NYFW Photography: The Greyest Ghost

Street-style fashion blogs are typically my favorites when I’m looking for a bit of international inspiration – especially out of Europe – but I want to highlight a fashion photographer that I’ve been following for a few years now. She’s incredible. So incredible that I can’t even share one of her photos here — they’re too good and should all viewed back to back on her site.

The Greyest Ghost is fashion photographer Rachel Scroggins’ “visual diary.” Cannot recommend it enough. I look forward to her fashion week coverage more than my regular glossies. She’s a talented photographer, but my favorite part of following her blog? The behind the scenes shots of the hair and makeup being applied to the models! The finishing touches on designers pieces! Seeing the final pictures of the models on the runway!

Her recent post blew my mind, get ready to visit “wonderland” at Thom Browne NYFW 2013. Oscar de la Renta and some spectacular hair in the first few sets, not to mention clothes. After that, you’ll absolutely want to skim through the recaps from each day – FW Day 8, FW Day 7, FW Day 6. You get the point.

It is so good. Go check her out. Thank me later.

Reading? Or, is it recommended digesting? Either way – visit The Atlantic’s In Focus section for a superb display of globally relevant photos.

The site features pictures of wartime and peace, celebration and heart-choking violence. Its rather unbiased representation of new stories in which it allows the photos to speak for themselves is moving on its own. But add the discrete narrative that the Atlantic adds to each series of photographs and you have an absolute must-read in my mind.

A few of my favorites:

Please note that the content is, at times, very graphic. Also note: so is the real world

Read through the past few posts, allow them to serve as a reminder for what each of has to celebrate – our families, out passions and, here in the US our freedom.
