The Man on The Street who Captures Street Style and Makes Trends, Vincenzo Grillo
In recent years the street has become every bit as influential as the runway, impacting designers, retailers, and demanding consumers alike. The move from catwalk to sidewalk can be attributed to street style photography influentials such as Vincenzo Grillo. Since 2006, Grillo has been at the forefront of street fashion photography for iMaxTree, capturing the “other” runway in Milan, London, New York or Paris.
“Traveling around the world taught me you can find inspiration everywhere. It’s not necessary to know the person you shoot, if you feel inspiration, it’s a victory,” says Grillo. Rain or shine, Grillo has been there to catch the chicest moments of today’s street style mavens and, more importantly, created an image archive to inspire all involved.
Working on the street you need to be careful to not be distracted, and be ready for the prefect moment.
