     Todd Selby is a portrait, interiors, and fashion photographer and illustrator. His project The Selby offers an insider’s view of creative individuals in their personal spaces with an artist's eye for detail.

    The Selby began in June 2008 as a website,  www.theselby.com, where Todd posted photo shoots he did of his friends in their homes. Requests quickly began coming in daily from viewers all over the world who wanted their homes to be featured on the site. The Selby’s website became so influencial —with up to 95,000 unique visitors daily—that within months, top companies from around the world began asking to collaborate.

    These joint projects have included collaborations with Louis Vuitton, Hennessy, FENDI, a large ad campaign and web project with Nike 6.0,  a solo show at colette, an international ad campaign for Habitat, work for the New York Times T Magazine, and frequent contributions to Vogue Paris and Architectural Digest France.

    Todd’s first book, The Selby is In Your Place , was released in May 2010 by Abrams followed by his 2nd book The Edible Selby released in 2012, in collaboration with NYTimes T Magazine in which he photographs the most creative and interesting people in food around the world. The third book in the ‘Selby’ series, Fashionable Selby, will be released in March 2014 and will explore the kaleidoscopic world of fashion, featuring profiles of today’s most interesting designers, stylists, haberdashers, models, shoemakers, and more.

    Before working on this project full time Todd worked as a translator and Tijuana tour guide to the International Brotherhood of Machinists, a researcher into the California strawberry industry, a Costa Rican cartographer, a consultant on political corruption to a Mexican Senator, an art director at a venture capital firm, an exotic flower wholesaler, a Japanese clothing designer, and a vermicomposting entrepreneur.

    Todd currently lives in New York City. His pastimes include eating four square meals a day, tying his shoes, planning vacations, breaking his computers, and working on his tan.

    • I first met Steve when my buddy Mark @thecobrasnake lived in a closet in Steve's office. All I knew about Steve at that point is that he knew about Bloc Party way before I did. Spending time with Steve over the years I began to appreciate his limitless energy and openness. Everywhere he goes he connects with people. Mark and I went to visit Steve in Las Vegas a while back. Steve and I cruised around all day, and when we headed back to his house after eating at the salad bar at @wholefoods the thing that shocked me was about ten random people we met that day were already at Steve's house! That's after he had come off a red eye flight, skated his half pipe, jumped off his balcony into the pool and was about to dj all night. That's being open.

    • I just turned 40, and over the last 6 months I have been thinking a lot about what I do and what my work says to people. On that note, it's pretty incredible that over 300,000 people got to see my show at the Daelim Museum in Seoul. I hope that visitors came away with a feeling of encouragement, turning to their parent or friend saying β€œI could do that.” My work is not the work of an expert, it’s the work of a passionate amateur. I want to say a big thank you to Seoul and @daelimmuseum for embracing my nutso ideas and photographs, and being such beautiful hosts for the last 6 months to #theselbyhouse and for all my colorful kooky creations. Goodbye and see ya next time. πŸ˜˜πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸŒˆπŸ’πŸŒπŸ”₯πŸŽ¨πŸ“·
