Documentary Explores the Explosion of ‘Street Style’ Fashion Photography

A High-End Fashion Shoot in the Midst of Occupy Protestors

Haute couture and Occupy protests are two things that are completely at odds with one another — the perfect combination for a photo shoot dripping with satire and social commentary. Photographer Ben Ritter did an American Psycho-themed fashion shoot featuring models wearing pricey suits hanging out among semi-homeless Occupy protestors camped out in Zucotti Park in New York City.

In one photograph, a model sporting a Christian Dior suit sits next to a dreadlocked guitar player while daintily eating caviar with an oblivious look on his face. In another, a model takes on the role of a fashionable protestor, attempting to blend into the crowd by wearing his Dior tie as a headband and banging away on a bongo drum.
