Backyard Bill takes the most simplistic and beautiful photographs of stylish people wearing their own clothes. For me, his photos convey a calming reassurance that ingenuity and individuality in style still exists. My favorite among Bill’s subjects is Christian Steen from Gothenburg, Sweden. I love how his clothing is reminiscent of heritage and the pieces are personalized with roughed up fabrics and frayed edges; they have been lived in and loved. Paired with his Nordic ice blue eyes, golden hair parted deeply on the side and an enviably full mustache, his style is so effortlessly real (and rough, tough and manly) it makes a woman like me swoon a little.
