A Tommy picture and THE GREAT CTHULHU HAWAIIAN SHIRT a Phil picture are different. Has maintaining your own aesthetics become more difficult now that the photographers outside shows has gone from maybe 15 to maybe 150? Oh: I don’t really know why. It makes it look more fun. So I don’t really mind when there are other people in the shot. That said, they’re not always pretty, beautiful pictures, so it’s a trade off, I guess. Ton: —point. At one point I started crying. It was the end of the season in 2012. I was just like, this is too much for me.

Ton: That’s the thing about the schedule for the whole month: It seems like it’s so much fun, but gradually, you know, just repeating it over and over again, moving over to Europe, switching to different time zones without even a day off. It’s a lot to take on mentally and physically—even when we were in our 20s and early 30s. Phil is often texting about photos at 2 a.m., 3 a.m. during Fashion Week. Do you have to be as crazy as we are to keep doing it? And then the last seven years have been harder because it’s much more stressful now that we’re older—and as much as Phil doesn’t mind the crowds, having that many people in the space and seeing that many faces does drain you. It’s hours of non-stop social interaction. The deadlines are much harsher, too. Phil can’t wait till the next day to edit and send his images.
