Street style has been the topic of hot debate in the last few months. It seems in the past year or so, it has catapulted from being categorized as ‘niche content’ into the forefront of the fashion industry. Fourth and Main is a brand and webshop that also producing editorial content that’s opinionated and personal.  Contributor and frequent street style photographer Francis Davison shares her candid personal experiences from the front lines of fashion week culture. In the feature she speaks on the camaraderie and competition between street style photographers and reflects on the evolving role of street style in fashion.

Street style is a micro-industry that exists on the peripheries of fashion; loathed for its invasive voyeurism by the same people who crave its attention – and hate themselves for craving it. Within the street style ‘community’ there is a complex set of politics and cliques. Every six months the same ever-expanding group of photographers assemble: clients are swapped and stolen, elbows are jostled and equipment is envied and disdained in equal measure.  Spending four weeks travelling and working together creates the atmosphere of an overblown school trip. The only thing we have in common is that we all really want ‘that’ shot of Russian editor Miroslava Duma, and we all hate the paparazzi.

There is a hierarchy which creates an unspoken set of rules about who I can and can’t talk to (I rank low, my camera isn’t taken seriously and barely anyone bothers to ask who I’m shooting for); if I tried to make small talk with any big names I’d be greeted with blank stares and few words. That said, for these weeks of the year the streets of Paris, Milan, London and New York become our workplace and most here are contending with jetlag, demanding editors and hundreds of images to sift through and edit each night until the small hours. I don’t blame them too harshly for wanting to keep their heads down.

I recommend you check out the entire feature HERE.

I was invited on-air for last weeks Fresh Out the Box Episode by hosts Geng-Grizzly and Note D and had a blast talking shit on the radio with them. I took these snaps of rapper Rome Fortune and producer Childish Major. They’re real humble , talented dudes from Atlanta and I gaurantee you’ll be hearing much more buzz from them in the coming months. Rome Fortune’s mixtape Beautiful Pimp drops next month so look out for that. Shoutout to Slushie King as well, dude doesn’t slip on his managerial duties AT ALL.If you missed the live airing you can download the archival episode HERE.

I came across this sci-fi inspired photo series by Polish photographer Dominik Smialowski. The series is the result of a collaboration between Dominik and artist  Joanna Pawłowska. I love photo work that has a cinematic quality to it, and the aesthetic of these images is reminiscent of sci-fi films such as Moon, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Prometheus and the upcoming Oblivion. You can see more images after the jump and see more of Dominik’s work on his official website.

Guy Aroch took these portraits of Swedish mega-babe & Victoria’s Secret Angel Elsa Hosk. The New York based Aroch is a leading fashion, beauty and celebrity photographer who has contributed to everything from Men’s Vogue to Marie Claire. I simply love natural beauty expressed and voyeuristic feeling of these shots. Digital archival prints in a variety of sizes are available for purchase through the Milk-Made store starting at $375.

The thing I love most about this feature is just seeing the world through the eyes of different photographers. Everyone has a different idea of what’s visually inspiring and worth taking a snap of, so being able to see the result of these decisions has been an enlightening experience. I really like the sponanteous nature of these photos that Jasmine took, you can see more of her stuff on her website or tumblr
