Men in This Town
Giuseppe Santamaria
Street Smith Books
9781922417381, $40.00, HC, 280pp

Synopsis: For the last decade, Giuseppe Santamaria has observed and photographically recorded the men of big cities while they cross streets, sit at cafes, and pose, momentarily, on busy sidewalks. Traveling the continents, Giuseppe has documented the evolution of men's identities, communicated through their attitude and style as they move through their different concrete jungles.

With photos shot in Sydney, New York, Tokyo, Milan, London, Melbourne, Toronto, L.A., Madrid, Florence, and Paris, "Men in This Town: A Decade of Men's Street Style" is a unique collection of images that presents a truly global retrospective of men's street fashion. Filled from cover to cover with striking photographs, "Men in This Town: A Decade of Men's Street Style" is a visual record of the men who stick out in a crowd with their particular sense of just who and what they are.

Critique: A unique compendium of full color photographic images of ordinary and extraordinary men's fashions over a ten year span and taken in a variety of countries and continents, "Men in This Town: A Decade of Men's Street Style" is especially and unreservedly recommended for reader's with an interest in photography and fashion. "Men in This Town: A Decade of Men's Street Style" will prove to a an immediate and enduringly popular addition to personal, professional, community, college, and university library Men's Fashion History collections and supplemental curriculum studies lists.
