Overview

The Selby Is in Your Place was conceived when fashion and interiors photographer Todd Selby began taking portraits of dynamic and creative people—authors, musicians, artists, and designers—in their home environments and posting them on his web site. Nosy by nature, he wanted to see how personal style was reflected in private spaces. Lucky for us, he found his answer in the color-rich and eclectic quarters of a diverse group of subjects, including Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler, Faris Rotter, Andre Walker, and Olivier Zahm, in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo, Sydney, and London. Each profile is accompanied by Selby’s watercolor portraits of the subjects and objects from their homes, and illustrated questionnaires, which Selby asks each sitter to fill out. This book consists of over thirty profiles, many of which have never-before-seen, selected exclusively for the book. The result is a collection of unique spaces bursting with energy and personality that together create a colorful hodgepodge of inspirational interiors.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Starred Review.

Globe-trotting photographer Selby has transformed his fascination with wacky interiors into a large-format book so wonderfully goofy it brings the conversation back to the coffee table. Selby traveled to the homes of more than 40 artist hipsters the world over, maximalists whose innovative personal lives influence their homes. They "Want you to see their cats, the weird ceramic sculptures they bought on the side of the road in West Virginia, their collection of Chanel shoes..." Whether Selby is shooting Karl Lagerfeld in Paris, whose space is startlingly jammed floor-to-ceiling with books, or hanging out on the tiny green canal boat fellow photographer Retts Wood calls home in a London marina, the common denominator is fun (the book even comes with stickers). Selby's labor of love documents the wilder side of life at home for free-spirited artists, musicians, writers, and models from New York, LA, Japan, Australia and elsewhere. Few of the artifacts Selby documents have a purely utilitarian use, and many have been plucked from the thrift store-or curb-solely for their joy-factor. Even if living with vintage prosthetic limbs or floors of fake snow doesn't appeal, this book is so full of whimsy that even minimalists will find ideas to steal.
