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.

AMY TONG

In this final episode of the season, I connected with a friend of Men In This Town, Amy Tong. As a regular writer in MITT magazine since issue 5, Amy has been bringing the stories of men from Australia and around the world to life with her wonderful writing and insightful interviews. We sit down and reflect on some of her favourite features in the magazine, her recent time living in Japan and a little taste of a new project we’re working on together.

THE WOMEN IN THIS TOWN BOOK

It’s a humbling experience to be releasing my second book this week, especially amongst other photographers and bloggers I admire who are doing the same. The journey in creating this book has given me the opportunity to really find my point of view when it comes to photography and storytelling and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you.

This book is dedicated to my mom, super woman. Her confidence, humour, unique style and strength are the same qualities I looked for in photographing the women in these towns. Individuals who are expressing themselves through fashion on their own terms, without a care in the world of what others might think.

I hope that at least one photo or story in this book will inspire you to do the same. Women In This Town: New York, Paris, Melbourne, Tokyo, Madrid and London is available to order online now and in all good bookstores worldwide.

Thank you to Hardie Grant Australia + UK and Rizzoli New York for believing in another book and to Olympus Australia for helping me capture these amazing women around the world.

Cheers,

Giuseppe

WOMEN IN THIS TOWN

Besides capturing amazing street style around the world in my new book, I also had the amazing opportunity to meet some incredible women, getting their take on the state of fashion in their towns. I’ve known Jamie Beck (above) of Ann Street Studio for a few years now and always really admired the way she carried herself and went on about life. An inspiring woman and so honoured that she shared her story.

Ah it’s exciting that it’s almost here, not long to go now! The book is available to pre-order now and will be in bookstores November 1st.
