At Home with Brian Ferry of the Blue Hour

Justine Hand April 24, 2012

On our radar for some time now: the atmospheric shots of Brooklyn-based photographer Brian W. Ferry, in particular his "home" series.

When Brian Ferry photographs interiors, it is not so much the sweeping architecture or fabulous furniture that draws his attention. Rather, he hones in on the more everyday. As Ferry himself puts it, "I'm very conscious of the things I choose to surround myself with… that help to create a sense of 'home' no matter where I may live." It is these well-loved personal households that Ferry documents in his "home" series—part of last year's group exhibit in London, Other People's Houses. For the exhibit, Ferry abstracted these items outside of their natural environment to create the evocative still-lifes seen here.

N.B.: To Brian Ferry's work for Remodelista, see A Designer's Haunt in Greenwich Village.
