Slavik's Street Style - over a 2-year period, Ukrainian photographer Yurko Dyachyshyn took dozens of portraits chronicling the remarkable daily stylings of a 55-year-old homeless man living in the city of Lviv.

Somehow this made me think of the Rabbit In Your Headlights video. (And whoa, Dj Shadow's version of the video has mattresses on the cars.)

This is splendid, he looks awesome. Also, it's clear he's participating in and enjoying the project, which makes it enjoyable to view rather than creepy/exploitative, which is great.

According to the followup project (NSFW probably), he disappeared from view in 2013.

This is cool, though it's worth looking at the project on the photographer's own website, which has a little bit of information about Slavik (as well as lots more outfits).

I love the variety of clothes both in style and size. This guy obviously enjoyed expressing himself through clothes. He also is a great subject.

Thanks for sharing!
