The third title from Giuseppe Santamaria.

Words by

Giulia Brugliera

The fashion industry is forever talking about ‘the eye’ and it’s evident that Giuseppe Santamaria has it. He sees the beauty in simple and understated style, looking past fashion week peacocks (and their sartorial cries for attention) to those whose style we often overlook. It’s a highly nuanced approach to street style photography.

Alone in a Crowd is the third instalment from Santamaria’s hardback series, focusing on men’s style in key cities across the globe. His images are expertly arranged, forming a narrative that highlights the differences in style between each city.

It’s this editorial finesse that takes Santamaria’s work well beyond street style pics.
