JPG Mag Street Style

Lauren and I love taking pictures for our blog, but we never kid ourselves into thinking that we're skilled photographers. For some real quality photos, take a look at JPG magazine. Photographers from all around the world submit their work to be published in the magazine and the current issue is devoted to street fashion.

The photo below was taken in Osaka Japan. I love how the subject looks so still and calm on a busy street. His pale skin and shrunken coat make him look oddly doll-like.

The man and woman in this image are equal parts elegant and relaxed, just like the restaurant/cafe they're sitting in.

Paris Street Fashion photo essay. The Odd Couple - Rachel Rebibo.

These peeps look just like their fellow citizens featured in Stockholm Street Style. I like the one guy's pompadour-ish 'do and the other guy's green laces, but I absolutely love the orange tights and short shorts on the girl. That look would not go over well in Atlanta, but she I'm sure she fits right in with the other Stockholm H&M shoppers.

I love these!
Especially the bottom one -- the guy on the left looks like the lead singer from a Danish band called Alphabeat. I wonder if it's him?

Hi Darlings! Thank you so much for introducing the JPG mag.
The Swedes in the picture look like something out of 80s.
Funny. :) Guess it's their hair-do!

these pictures are so crisp and beautiful. There's something so genuinely appealing about all of them, and the personalities of each person just seems to permeate each photo.

I think the elegant couple is my favorite--they're not an obvious subject choice but there's something very intriguing about them and the shot is well composed.
