Still Photographer. Illustrator. Visual Storyteller. Burgeoning Nonfiction Filmmaker. Todd Selby has an amazing following and a unique vision. Photojournalism - but stylized, art directed - The Selby Style. With an artist's eye for detail, Todd’s projects are an insider’s view of creative individuals in their personal spaces.
The Selby began in 2008 as a website, www.theselby.com, where Todd posted photoshoots he did of his friends in their homes. Requests quickly poured in from viewers all over the world who wanted their homes featured on the site, leading to shoots with Pamela Love, Kate and Andy Spade, Pharrell Williams, Albert Maysles, Philippe Stark, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Stefano Tonchi, Helena Christensen, Blake Mycoskie, Alexander Wang and Krysten Ritter. His unique book, The Selby is in Your Place, featured many of those shoots embellished by Todd's words and illustrations. Published in May 2010, the first edition immediately sold out.
His creative work has also included a solo show at Collette in Paris with art and events (including karaoke and a pet photography studio) featured in the store's windows, work for the New York Times’ T Magazine, and his frequent contributions to Vogue Paris, Casa Brutus, and Vogue Hommes International.
It's no surprise that creative advertisers have taken notice and engaged with him for their own campaigns. Todd’s photographic collaborations included those for Louis Vuitton, Hennessy, Nike, CB2, Dockers, Cole Haan, among others.
Todd's day-in-the-life documentary shorts include Rockaway Taco, portrait of the artist Tom Sachs and Lucy Chadwick for Zara. Like his photography work, Todd’s films are a stylish glimpse into the lives of some very interesting people.
