Through Doors

Walking into people’s homes is a look into their lives.  Over the last few months I have been spending more time visiting people at their homes, photographing the things they would take if their house was burning.  In addition to photographing their things,  I always snap a few shots of their interiors to test the light.  At first,  I didn’t realize that I was taking this very similar photograph over and over again.  I guess people like certain images.  Here are some photos I have shot in the last few months through these open doors.

A look at Jimmy Fountaine’s, a snowboarding buddy turned hotshot fashion photographer, stacks of negatives at his West Village apartment.

The ladder up to the roof at Jen Turner’s, architect and furniture designer, Brooklyn home.

A look into Sandra Wijnberg’s, private equity wizard , Berkshire Mass home.

 

Having a structured visual format helps me distinguish what’s actually different.  Although these photos are shot in a very similar way, they all feel very distinct.  It happened subconsciously, but I’m going to run with it.  It’s funny how habits arise.
