Around the world in 80 styles is a visual style odyssey around the planet. Since 2012, we've been discovering the world through the people who populate it. Solely guided by our eyes, from silhouette to silhouette, from encounter to encounter, each person's style tells a story of a culture. Every portrait is both a human encounter and a discovery of a place, an invitation to travel.

Our approach focuses on style in a broad sense. The criteria has been that one’s style must call out to us, whether it is traditional, fashionable or eccentric. We attempt to give an original touch to our street style work by capturing both the person and the setting where we meet them. To do this, we chose a wide-angle lens, allowing us to have the background and the person in the foreground both in focus.

Style-wise, each region of the world still keeps its distinctive features: the fabric, the design, the motif, the cut - all these style elements portray a culture and how, for instance, it has been shaped throughout history by foreign influences. Nowadays one can see the impact of globalisation that leads to a certain homogenisation, sometimes resulting in interesting mixtures of tradition and modernity. We hope you'll enjoy discovering the world through our eyes!
