Dogs In This Town
WITH LEO GREENFIELD
I'm excited to be working on a new season of the Portrait Session podcast in partnership with Armani Exchange Connected. With the introduction of the hybrid smartwatch by Armani Exchange — a basic watch, now redefined with tech utility for effortless style and function — I wanted to connect with the stylish men I photograph on the street by bringing them into the studio for a portrait and have a chat about their particular approach to their personal style, work life and play.
In this episode, I connected with Leo Greenfield — an artist whose work has brought him around the world, having collaborated with brands including Vogue and Gucci. His street style illustrations originally caught my attention on Instagram — his way of capturing strangers on the street has an almost whimsical feel to it, reminding me of the opening scene of Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, only more fashion. When I learned Leo was living back in Australia, I was desperate to connect and share stories from the front line.
LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
This week, we’re taking a mid-season break from the Portrait Session podcast and instead presenting you with a bonus episode of Off the Cuff with Ali. The event took place a couple weeks ago as part of the Reigning Men exhibition at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in Sydney. With an audience of over 40 guests, Ali brought his column in MITT issue 9 to life, as he looked at prominent movements in art and fashion, exploring how they affected one another, and continue to shape our contemporary imagination.
