if you haven't checked out the selby i highly recommend it. i discovered it back in august one day as i was "blog dreaming" as i like to call it. getting lost on various blogs and websites with one creative page leading to another.
todd selby is a portrait, interiors, and fashion photographer and illustrator.
his project the selby offers an insider’s view of creative individuals in their personal spaces with an artist's eye for detail. the selby began in june 2008 as a website, http://www.theselby.com/, where todd posted photo shoots he did of his friends in their homes.
requests quickly began coming in daily from viewers all over the world who wanted their homes to be featured on the site. the selby’s website became so popular—with up to 55,000 unique visitors daily—that within months, top companies from around the world began asking to collaborate.
these joint projects have included a large ad campaign and web project with nike 6.0, a solo show at colette, an international ad campaign for habitat, work for the new york times t magazine, and frequent contributions to vogue paris and architectural digest france. todd’s first book, the selby is in your place, was released in may 2010 by abrams.
the same day i discovered the selby i was running through anthropologie and spotted the book for sale. i always think it is crazy how that happens. anyways, check it out- you can learn a lot about a person by seeing where they live.
