NEW YORK: Don Freeman is an American photographer, best known for his large, monochrome prints that depict subject matter, be it landscape, human forms or architectural fragments. I admire his work mostly and looking at his photographs of interiors gives me a pleasant feeling. I am taken by the atmosphere he captures with light and simplicity so that a simple rooms becomes a set, a state of mind.

Don Freeman lives in New York where he divides his time between fine art photography, commercial photography and filmmaking. Don’s photographs have appeared regularly in Vogue, House Beautiful, Vanity Fair and other magazines.

His current projects, a book for Abrams titled Artists’ Handmade Houses and a film called Living Art will document his love for the artist’s home and show off his talent for capturing interiors, objects and his favorite subject of all: light.

She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever
she sees something interesting,

WHERE IS IRMA NOW?

MUNICH

When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
