Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Handcrafted Modern gives a fascinating glimpse into the homes that significant architects and designers - Harry Bertoia, Eva Zeisel, and Charles and Ray Eames, to name a few - built for themselves" ~C

"A revealing photo essay" ~Elle Decor

"Every now and then, a book arrives which is not just a handsome presentation of information, but also a completely satisfying aesthetic object. This is the case with Handcrafted Modern by Leslie Williamson. Her photographs inside designers' (mostly) midcentury modernist homes capture something of the inhabitant and his or her pattern of living. But they reveal something more--something of the life of the designer of the space." ~Architects Newspaper

"Bottom line--This book is simply superb! ...this is a must have for any design enthusiast, especially anyone who appreciates the handcrafted... this publication will not disappoint" ~Design Therapy blog

Simple and Beautiful 5 novembre 2010
Par Jim Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I must say I disagree with the previous reviewer. Out of focus? The photographs I'm looking at have an artistry to them that goes beyond the clinical maximization of detail. I'd say she does a great job of capturing the mood of these personal spaces. Some of these homes and the rooms in them have been lived in and lovingly looked after for 40 years and more by their owners. They aren't showrooms. They have worn edges and faded colors in places, which makes them just that much more appealing to my mind. The diffuse natural lighting she's using I find to be a perfect fit to this subject. Some of the shots are just gorgeous and the book has page after page of them, many in full-page format.

I'm just glad someone has taken the time to create a record of these spaces at this phase of their existence. They very well may be gone (at least in non-museum form) in not too many more years. Definitely one of the better books of this type I've come across, and one I'm extremely happy to have added to my library.

Making Photography Interesting 7 novembre 2010
Par Marilyn Duncan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a beautiful book with a fascinating premise; a look at the inside of artists' homes and work spaces. My experience is limited to seeing and enjoying photography in museum exhibits, usually by well known artists, but this new book has opened my eyes to the possibilities of modern photography and the interesting stories which lie behind the pictures. Leslie Williamson has a bright future ahead of her and we can take "Handcrafted Modern: At Home with Mid-century Designers" in hand to peruse at our leisure and for much personal pleasure.

an intimate and beautiful glimpse 12 décembre 2010

Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Many of the artists/architects/designers whose homes are the subjects of this book, had never before allowed someone to capture (let alone publish) their home or such details of them. They chose to let Leslie Williamson inside to see how they actually live/lived. As I savored this book, I enjoyed thinking about why. Why her? Certainly, it wasn't because she's a disinterested photojournalist or architectural photographer. I've googled around and seen some of her other work--a photojournalist or architectural photographer she is not. She's a fine-art photographer.

I think that they saw, as I do, that she's a very thorough, thoughtful and appreciative artist who, if given a chance, might reveal a bit more to the world about what their own work means. They wanted to be seen by HER. I am glad for that.

The act of choosing her subjects, courting them and then deciding how to photograph their homes is an artistic act. Some of the images are poetic. Others are down right funny. All of them are beautiful and do justice to their subject.

Fables of the Natural World 26 décembre 2012
Par Emily A. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is stunning. Featuring the beautifully photographed homes of famous midcentury architects, furniture makers, and designers, this book demonstrates how creative people infuse aesthetics into every object and experience, and how we work very hard to build up a world of handcrafted beauty around ourselves. Each home profile is like stepping into the magical world of the particular "fable" that each architect or designer constructed with his or her life. This is not your "cold," "clean-lined" modernism--in these homes, "modern" refers to the act of working with natural materials and bringing out their special characteristics and potential. Because she was committed to photographing on film and using only natural light or light sources from within the homes, Leslie Williamson's exquisite, golden-hued photographs produce an almost-tangible nostalgia. As an added treat, each house profile is accompanied by Williamson's charming, poetic ruminations, interwoven with a bit of background on each figure. This book is truly an inspiration for those of us who just love looking at beautiful things, and it's a blueprint for those of us who enjoy pushing the boundaries of everyday existence by creating one-of-a-kind living environments that are as practical as they are breathtaking.
