It was about as difficult to make the decision for this post like the theme to it here goes, is itself: namely the mapping of children on Streetstyleblogs.
Of the photographer, Blogger and founder of the blog the Satorialist, Scott Schuman, published a snapshot, which was of course not without comment in the light of the currently circulating discussions regarding the Lambrechts of minors, last Sunday. His portfolio of well dressed people is but usually model faces and stylish gentlemen of adult age, this time he was a little five or six year-old girl as a very neat and published as a result, the left image on his page.
After initially admiring commentators rapidly also critical voices that had: „ much to adult looks the child “, „ what is the pacifier as “, and so on. Also online magazines such as Fashionista joined the discussion. The questions are numerous: it’s okay to post photos of children in such a context? May they be used as style role models? This is cute or concern and who is addressed with these pictures? Is the kid a victim of her fashion-crazy mother or just a normal kid who is just well clad. And who has the right to the image, how find it small, everyone can see it? It’s not often that I absolutely don’t know where with my opinion or what opinion I ever represent. Maybe you can help me on the jumps?
Because skeptical so I am or so, who isn’t these days also. When looking at this picture, I feel however first of all no bitter aftertaste. The girl is not überstyled, nor does it to adult, it looks just only a bit serious and loses his clumsy peculiarity. It sit even delightful out. But then doubts are me, because all the pictures of beautiful people floating around see otherwise at the Satorialist, should actually meet. There must be just a girl in between fudeln and hold forth for even more clicks. Should not maybe just stay child, rather than best dressed this girl?
Is the pillorying of this recording seems just so ver quert, finally it is a serious environment, not any a questionable shooting, how Thylane Rose Blondeau’s has to endure about themselves. What we must not forget: it’s not the first time that Mr Schuman posts small contemporaries – held then in the initial phase of his blogs and when his own children. Is this eternal discussion so again too much air to nothing? Maybe it is. Because are much worse than this snapshot in my opinion of blogs as „ planet awesome kids “ (right image), which are advertised by influential media such as style.com. Why just no alarm bells? Just because Scott Schuman is a term in contrast to all these flimsy online presences every fashion brain? „ vision “ arguably remains the keyword. Because the images alone are the problem, but the entire rat tail, which is supplied free is getting longer. And at some point, children are not kids anymore then?
(Scott Schuman has taken the image of the girl of his blog – for the first time in the history of the Satorialist disappeared so a recording.) Hundreds of hate comments due to its formulation had so far not even „ bigger “ done on a slim Lady.)
