My photographs will be in the new book by Tom Dixon!

September 7, 2008

 

Yes, you read that correctly ladies and gentlemen!
My photographs will be seen in the new tome written by Tom Dixon entitled: The Interior World of Tom Dixon, published by ConranOctopus. It really was divine providence that I met this wonderful, intelligent and thought-provoking designer at a party held in his honor here in Seoul back in 2007. Amazing!
He asked to see my work, liked it enough to hire me to be his photographic eyes here in Seoul and the rest you will be able to see on the 15th of September! Working for Tom Dixon made me take a closer look at curves, lines, texture and how they affect not only everything that I do and touch but also how it affects the way that we all live and respond to our environment.

I’m so excited and honored that this man thought enough of my work to take a chance on an unknown photographer like myself. Thank you Tom for the opportunity and for the great advice you gave me when I visited you and your staff in London this summer. I hope to continue to collaborate with designers and artists of his caliber in the days to come. I am back here in Seoul partly due to his advice as well as my faith that I can accomplish that which I am here to do and become. In a way, I’ve been doing it and have been IT since day one. I mean, aren’t we all doing what we truly want to do? Think about it. 

Thank you Tom, you wrote a wonderful book!

If you happen to be in London please go to the book signing!

Here’s also a brief description of the book taken from Riba Book Shops

Interior design is rapidly becoming a subject of general interest as manufacturers, retailers and marketers race to promote and define themselves and their brands through design. Paradoxically, as everything becomes ‘designed’ it gets more and more difficult to define what the word actually means.

This book describes a personal approach from Tom Dixon, who through 20 years of practising, has defined his own rules for categorising and describing different aspects of the subject. Divided into six chapters, the book delves into materials, processes and styles throughout history to the present, and gives an impression of what the future may look like. This is both a personal vision and a valuable resource of ideas.

    And more congratulations! Hey, we’ll be transiting through Seoul in December. Going to bug for some suggestions for our time there at some point, think we have a couple of hours.
