Are you a creative soul living within the walls of a wacky crazy world of your own creation? Or are you just another beige dwelling number crunching McSomething sucking drone monster? Okay there are other options, you may just be the most awesome flesh monkie on the planet, living in a master piece of design and style. That last one wasn’t you? Hmmm, I am running out of descriptions. Let me get to my point. Do you ever wonder how that first group actually lives. The creative wacky world type. Well, wonder no more. Welcome to the world of The Selby.

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, 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 popular—with up to 35,000 unique visitors daily—that within months, top companies from around the world began asking to collaborate.

These joint projects have included 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, will be released in May 2010 by Abrams.

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, planning vacations, breaking his computers, and working on his tan.
