slate.com: “the face hunter is the only one to sexualize its subjects.”

I’ve forgotten to talk about one of the first serious articles about “street style” – published 2 weeks ago: “Street fashion blogs keep tabs on the world’s most stylish pedestrians.” by Justin Shubow. Serious… even there are some funny details about my work. It’s said that I “sexualize my subjects” and I “put decadent scenesters on display”. Do I really take dirty pictures?

    Sexuallize might be all that we manipulate to attract…It is not dirty, it is active and voluntary, and it relates to each own identity.

    you don’t sexualize the subjects – the subjects sexualize themselves.

    you don’t make them objects, the thing is, they already look so fucking good everybody gets turned on just by looking at them, and that’s why they seem sexualized, cause all we want to do is to fuck the gorgeous people you get to take pics of.

    yes you do, and we hope you keep it that way

    maybe it’s that u prefer to take photos of self-sexualized people. they sure have a style.

    Your subjects are no more sexualized than any venue of this sort, save for the image where the girl’s panties are showing. I thought that was a bit tasteless. The rest is golden.

    I think we see what we want to see and that’s the way it should be.

    By the way, I am a huge fan of Face Hunter. I love faces, so that’s the perfect place to stop by and feed my inspiration. I did some drawings based on your photos and posted on my blog. I hope you don’t mind.

    i don’t think you sexualize your subjects. i think they are no more sexual than good-looking, well-dressed people in paris are by default.

  13. “the facehunter” refers to facehunter.blogspot.com. Check it out and you’ll see what the review means – Sure, you’re a facehunter, too…
