Natalia Kills, Outside Prabal Gurung, 8th Ave, New York

outside Prabal Gurung
Scott Schuman, in a recent interview with Kinvara Balfour at the Apple Store in Chelsea, made the comment that the alignment switch in street style photography from primarily vertical to primarily horizontal had everything to do with the medium with which readers would be viewing the material: computer screens, especially laptop screens. Horizontally-aligned photos simply look better on laptops. That's why street style stalwarts like Tommy Ton and Nam began shooting primarily in horizontal. But now that more and more readers are viewing images on mobile phones, a vertically-aligned medium, the convention is beginning to switch back. I hope it doesn't happen too soon. I feel like I'm just getting the hang of horizontal.

Here's British singer Natalia Kills working the photographers in front of the old Manhattan post office.
