These days, street style photography is often synonymous with candid fashion week snaps or shots of trendsetters in various world cities. Predating these fads, New York photographer Amy Arbus presents a number of archive photos documenting New York’s street style. As style photographer for The Village Voice in the ’80s, Arbus often looked to the streets for inspiration, capturing those who stemmed from the city’s thriving subcultures. Having documented outfits of stars like Andre Walker, Madonna and The Clash to the unsung heroes of the Lower East Side, Arbus photos tell the stories of an evolutionary time in fashion. Check out the images here and head to AnOther Mag to learn more about Arbus’ aesthetic.
