Those featured include a myriad of personalities from the ultramodern, the traditional, and some totally from left field. Chapters in the book on specific artists take readers into an intimate peek, seeing their studios, workshops, and even the privacy of their homes. Selby’s images give a captivating look into the work environments and working quirks and methods of each designer, as well as glimpses into what makes these people tick.

Most of the private spaces of these creative people have colorful mood boards as well as cluttered work tables filled with fabrics, notebooks and sketches. Some like Japanese headpiece artist Katsuya Kamo and Belgian designer Dries van Noten have tidy and orderly studios, while others like jewelry designer Andrew Logan and Diesel’s artistic director Nicola Formichetti have color-coded swatches on their walls and many jars of trinkets and charms.

It took Selby three years to assemble this new book, interviewing each subject. “With fashion, people often associate it with marketing, and they forget the other side of it, which is the creators. Fashion is filled with so many passionate people that have a really unique vision and their own take on creativity.”

I am a freelance photographer who is no stranger to smudged lenses, long hours in front of the computer, heavy camera bags (and the back aches that ensued) and missing lens caps. If you know what I'm talking about, you probably have as much love and passion for photography as I do.
