We asked creators around the world to interpret the meaning of latitude through the ultimate language of self-expression: fashion. The result? A global tapestry depicting modern-day culture and identity, woven together by threads that feel as universal as they do unique.

40°47′0.35″ N, 73°57′58.5″ W

“What you wear and how you wear your clothes is often a person’s first choice in their expression of individuality. I wanted to photograph and document a wider spectrum of NYC’s youth with a focus on diversity across all five boroughs. Each individual is stylistically representing themselves and their local community within their borough.” Ben Grieme
