The Selby

This weekend I purchased the new book, The Selby Is in Your Place - a fun, little-bit crazy, photography/home decorating/voyeuristic-delight book. Photographer Todd Selby started photographing his friends (artists, musicians, models, etc.) in their homes and posting the photos on his blog, The Selby. It became wildly popular, with people all over the world requesting that he come and photograph them in their homes. I'm thoroughly enjoying pouring over the photos, taking in every messy, wild, beautiful detail. One of the most fun aspects of the book (and blog) are the random, quirky questionnaires Todd gives them. Here are some of my favorite photos from the book:


Grace and Kenyan on their upstate New York property.

Kenyan's prosthetic leg collection from eBay.


Jeff owns a bike shop in LA where he used to also sell coffee. It's called Choke.

He doesn't sell coffee anymore because people used to line up around the block to get a cup, it was so good. It was seriously impeding his time to do other stuff, so, naturally, he just stopped selling it.

Pinball, bikes and good coffee? What could be better?

All photographs by Todd Selby.
