One Man's Style

Since January of 2009, One Man's Style has been standing out in a world of ubiquitous and often interchangeable photo blogs. Always four pictures—no more no less—it takes a very measured approach to presenting beautiful images. Each post is a visual short story capturing a unique aesthetic or theme. We decided to learn who exactly this style represents. Turns out it's curated by Andy Ray out of Boston, MA, who's still amazed at what his blog has become. - Jon Gaffney


What led you to start the blog?

I'd been checking out blogs and had a bunch of pictures I'd saved, and I wanted to do something with them. Each post is based of off 4 pictures: 1 men's style, 1 woman, and 2 randoms (i.e. design, culture or food).


How do you curate posts?

There are so many pictures out there that are cool, but for one reason or another they don't fit into my aesthetic. I stick with the same format, sometimes I try to create a story with the man and woman as the characters, sometimes it's just objects that I feel fit in some way.


And they vary aesthetically, is there one that really personifies you?

I don't think that I can be classified into one specific style (prep, traditional, high fashion, minimalist). But there aren't any posts on the site that don't represent my style or interests.

Was this 'Mix' worthy?

What is this?

What should I pack for my first business trip?

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
