San Francisco photographer Leslie Williamson focuses on getting the nuanced houses of designers, architects, and midcentury artists; her two novels, Handcrafted Modern: At Home with contemporary Originals and Midcentury Designers: At Home with Midcentury Designers that are European, are immediate classics. So that it is unsurprising that she lives in a nostalgia-load 1960s Joseph Eichler home in SF, hidden until now. When she was approached by our buddies she called on Brian Ferry, a Brooklyn photographer known for his cozy work.
“I have respected Leslie’s work to get quite a while and she is had a huge effect on my own, personal photography,” Brian says. “No one has photographed Leslie’s house for a characteristic before so I was honored that she’d decided to let me do it. I felt a duty to get Leslie and her inside with susceptibility and emotion, in a way she’s done a lot of times in her career.”

Above: “The things the rarity gather all have storylines and are from my children, both my genetic and selected families,” Leslie tells FvF. “These matters are deeply rooted in telling the story of my life.”

Believe it or not believe it, Leslie located it on Craigslist.” Eichlers are known for my family’s plans, touch interior wood paneling, and humble scale (for a revamped example, visit Reader Rehab: Eichler that is Respectful Remodel in Marin).

Above: Leslie got in a quiet minute. “I constantly feel somewhat anxious before a shoot no matter who I am shooting,” Brian says. “For this one, it is possible to picture how Brian felt. Brian had been shooting an interior portrait of among my photography heroes, a girl that has made iconic pictures of the precise subject matter.”
