From photographer extraordinaire William Abranowicz, American Originals is a tribute to unique living spaces and the people who create and inhabit them. This lavish volume will take you on a visual tour of the homes of twenty-eight larger-than-life creatives, who all treat their spaces as the ultimate canvas for self-expression. From Linda Rodin’s eclectic Chelsea apartment to John Mellencamp’s cathedral-like mansion to the modern, art-filled ranch shared by Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, you’ll find page after page of gorgeous interiors that may vary wildly in style but that all share a sense of soulful authenticity and personal history— true reflections of their fiercely individual residents. Abranowicz has captured each of these breathtaking spaces in a series of stunningly unconventional portraits, interspersed with accounts of his personal interactions with his subjects and their spaces, as well as his thoughts on decoration and honesty in design. A celebration of the relationship between people and places, this book is sure to be an endless source of inspiration for living authentically and creatively in a home that tells your story.
