Clothes, pose, controlled eccentricity : deconstruct Ed Suter's street portraits.
Based in Cape Town and born in the United Kingdom, the author of the book Sharp Sharp grew up in South Africa. Street theater and lifestyle are his main sources of inspiration: Jo’burg has few parks or markets and so the street becomes the main area for public gathering and interaction. Ed Suter photographs what he sees before him: his work belongs to the tradition of portraits and images that one controls, of clothing trends and new relationships with imagery on the Internet. Echoing the theme of Street Cultures, Ed Suter offers a selection from his entire body of work.
