During a recent visit to London I got a call from StudioIlse with a request to photograph their new design studio and some portraits of Ilse Crawford for their press outreach. I was travel weary from a month on the road and yet I could think of no other place I would have wanted to spend my last 2 days in London. Ilse Crawford is a designer I greatly admire since her days founding Elle Décor UK. I have watched over the years as she designed objects and interiors and each time marveled at not only the beautiful design but the humanity that seems to be imbued in object and interior alike. My time photographing there was pure pleasure.
