I really like this little series called The Original Hipster by Julia Chesky. Chesky is a Parson school graduate who is currently working as retoucher and is store windows obsessed. She shot this story with Art Director Ali Lee and Chris, an interesting (homeless) model,.. the editorial is based on The Pushcart War book. Personally I have always found specific details about the homeless to be a great source of inspiration and totally agreed with Julia’s title “The Original Hipster”.
“Our lovely model, Chris, has lived on Mercer Street for a few decades by choice. I’m calling this series The Original Hipster because on most days he doesn’t even look like he’s truly homeless. “
