The Sartorialist on film

I'm sure many of you read Scott Schumman's blog, The Sartorialist, and adore the people-watching he affords us through his lens. This short film follows him on a typical day in NYC as he's out on the lookout for people to shoot for the blog.

What I love most about his narration throughout the film is his reflection on what so many of us love about blogs like his. Scott explains that they've given us a "digital park bench" -- for every person who says they love to sit and people watch, The Sartorialist and other similar blogs, such as Garance Dore, give us that sensation, albeit virtually. And I think, our lives are richer and more interesting because of this medium.
