Barneys threw a book party for the release of The Selby’s debut monograph, “The Selby is in Your Place” last Thursday, April 15th, 2010. The Selby is known for the intimate look that he gets into his subjects by studying their home environment, taking snapshots of their personal belongings, collections, pets, furniture, and more that describe and reflect each individual. What started out as a personal project to document the cool spaces of creative and quirky friends and their friends of friends in 2008 is now a published book by Abrams that features people such as Karl Lagerfeld, Erin Wasson, Christian Louboutin, Helena Christenson, Terence Koh, and more. Each photo session is followed by a signature hand-written interview by The Selby and a watercolor portrait of each subject. Bonus: the book comes with stickers!
