“People want to be recognised, people want to be seen” – Charles H. Traub
Between 1977 and 1980, Charles H. Traub took portraits of people who passed his eye in Chicago, New York and various European cities.
He told Another Mag:
“Most people kind of adored being noticed, and stopped, and taking a brief minute at lunch time to engage. I think there were no caricatures, there was no negative attention involved in it. Just capturing the passing show of the street.”
“In the 70s, people were still conscious of a sartorial individuality. Today, most people pretend to not be interested, although everybody considers what they put on for a reason.”
