Modern Originals

At Home with European Midcentury Designers

01(alt)-ModOrigBook.IMG_8950

My second book and the second leg of my design pilgrimage to see how my favorite midcentury designers lived. Modern Originals: At Home with European Midcentury Designers was released in April 2014 by Rizzoli Publications. Like my first book Handcrafted Modern, it stems from a dream list of my favorite designers and my desire to “meet” them through their home. It is a pure blessing when these designers are still alive and I am able to enjoy a couple days photographing their homes and asking them questions. But I also am dedicated to exploring the homes of my favorite designers whose homes are faithfully preserved as museums. I traveled to 10 countries in Europe for this one and am still shooting more. So maybe there will be a volume 2 for Europe. But next is definitely South America.
