With thousands of ‘street photographers’ around it is only refreshing to have a version come around that is not only witty but very talented. Parisian, The Unknown Hipster has recently just moved to NYC where he has just attended the opening night for Damien Hirst’s exhibition ‘End Of An Era’ and instead of taking endless mediocre photos of the famous go-ers and party people, The Unknown Hipster has hand drawn senarios and well know faces with clever and more-than-likely subtitles. He is definitely worth the time and you can catch a huge feature on him inside Issue three of our The New Order magazine here.
