You know when you're hanging out in your apartment and the place looks really nice and you're having a good 'messy' hair day and you're just generally feeling pretty into yourself--this is when you wish Todd Selby was there. Don't know what we're talking about? Well, set aside an hour and make yourself a hot cup of tea and check out the next best hipster documentarian out there. Selby, close as he may be with Mark the Cobrasnake, captures subjects from all walks of life, most of whom are poised in the comfort of their own homes. Author Tom Wolfe, publisher of Paper Magazine Kim Hastreiter, and designer Alexander Wang are all featured on Selby's site, their personal effects playing as great a role as do their portraits. What's more, at the end of each shoot you'll find a brief handwritten interview with the subjects.
Here's to the next evolution in online portraiture and the birth of the Coutorture lifestyle section where we can finally talk about something other than sequins (wink, wink). Namely, New York photographers and other well-dressed citizens.
