Philadelphia Street Style: Fitchie Capone, Chestnut St

I spotted videographer Fitchie Capone, leaning on a sign at the corner of Broad and Chestnut, from across the street and down the block and knew immediately that I wanted to photograph her. It might have been the cheetah spots on the side of her head or the puffy pink fro, but I think it was more something about how she carried herself. I hurried my pace and rushed through the crosswalk. I got a few shots of her on the sign, then asked her to pose on Chestnut where it wasn't quite so backlit. "I respect all artists," she told me, as we parted ways. 

Here, she's wearing a tank top and cut-offs from Old Navy, shoes by Levis, and a pair of sunglasses she got from "some store on Chestnut." She describes her style as "spontaneous" and her taste in music as "everything." When pressed, she mentioned Soulja Boy as one of her all-time faves.
