cott Schuman and Garance Doré—two of the Web’s most prominent bloggers, boyfriend and girlfriend, and, as of June 4, CFDA honorees—are living, breathing, August Sander-adulating proof that you can make a career and a living off the nebulous entity called “street style.” Scott stalks the streets by bicycle, shooting not only fashion insiders but kids, rakishly disheveled elderly gentlemen, and everyone in between. “You spend hours outside—it’s like hunting,” Doré says. Her subjects, by contrast, aren’t just photographed: They’re befriended, gossiped with, pumped for favorite vintage shops and coffee bars. If Scott hunts, Garance gathers. “She wants to interact with the person,” he says.
However they may differ, their successes now run in parallel. Doré is considering her first book; Schuman is at work on his second, to arrive this fall. Together, they’ll accept the CFDA’s Media Award, the first bloggers to be so honored. They may object to the label of “street-style photographers.” But they’re a good part of the reason the label exists at all. On the eve of the awards, Style.com sat down with the duo to find out more.
