Steven Vogel’s solo book project is now upon us. “Streetwear The Book” is Steven’s first solo book project which is sort of a collection of friends and colleagues who have been influential to the culture and sub-cultures involved in streetwear. As Steven states it is not another “fashion guide, fashion bible, or who’s who” in street culture. The book goes into territories such as personal stories and short interviews that expand on the “fears, thoughts, goals, and opinions about streetwear” of those involved in the book. The book is 352 pages long loaded with colorful images of everything related to street culture.
The release is set on May 9th and will be available at places where you already know should be carrying this book. If not, just hit up your local spot and ask about it. For more information about the book, head over to Steven Vogel’s blog.

Check out this video clip of famed NY photographer Terry Richardson taking pictures of models in swimwear with his little snapshot Yashica T4. Terry Richardson also explains why it’s easier for him to use this camera rather than the expensive zoom lensed cameras.
