De gustibus non est disputandum
I believe that ultimately the more creativity is brought to bear on something, the better. Ten years ago, street style photographers were not there, and now they’re there and it’s part of the mix. People like Tommy Ton and Scott Schuman are pretty big brands that many people out in the rest of the world know. And maybe there’s some kid out in suburban Chicago who’s 16 and sees this stuff, and it ignites a dream in him. That’s great.
