The Tim Blanks Take My Picture film address the current surge in street style photography. The acclaimed fashion journalist tracks the progression of the fashion photographer beginning in the 1980s, taking the rise of the supermodel as the true beginning of the phenomenon.

Blanks points to the online stardom that has come with street style pictures. Many of the women featured are famous for merely being famous, creating a cult-like obsession with popular blogs and the individuals featured within them. This reality has been furthered by multiple photography mediums, seen in social media tools like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. And given these forums, it is no wonder that Take My Picture has already amassed over 70,000 online views within a single week.
