If you are not shure about this one, just stick to the blog, for some reason the images look better in the screen than printed. I thought I would never say that.
I got offered this book : the title was screaming Facehunter (I got a different edition from the one shown here but couldn't find it on amazon so I'll use this one instead, provided the title is the same, contents should be too), the cover was so déjà vu that , a few days later, I barely remember it (the one shown here is better in my opinion - and probably one of the best pictures).
After reading it, I now know it could have been called « Fashion street » or something even more original, « Streetwear » and feel as relevant as "Facehunter".
But why be original on the cover when it's about all the book contains, no less, no more...
The problem for me I am not interested in (most aspects of) fashion photography per se and provided you don't know Mr Rodic's way of working and reasons for it, you don't get much else out of browsing through the book.
What else to say ? The book is a great encyclopedia of young adults streetwear in the (roughly) western world. If you live in Ushuaia, it might seem extravagant. Otherwise, why not just take a walk around the corner ? It manages to make you smile at times, as you feel you've been kicked out of the street fashion game a long time ago (or you never were interested in it, for some semi-conscious reason).
Now to something else. I got a problem with the technical aspect of it ; in 2010 I like my pictures - as a spectator - to be technically flawless. What a flawless pic is is probably a very long discussion - which I will not debate here - but considering a couple of these pictures were not even properly focused (and one would have a hard time telling me it was a style effect), it kind of killed how little was left of my enthousiasm for it. The pictures' style and editing weren't my cup of tea, the models conveyed no emotion - or put it in a more objective way, no emotions that I could relate to. But maybe that's just me in need of more « scenarized » works and feelings to enjoy a picture.
Finally, and maybe I should have started with this, Mr Rodic has a famous blog, google it and give him a visit. If you enjoy what you see, this book might be for you...it just wasn't working for me, unfortunately.
