It’s official: I’m addicted to art. The strongest part of my addiction lies in photographic prints, which is why I was super excited to add two of Gray Malin’s
photographs to the walls of my apartment. Gray and I met in person while I was in Los Angeles last month (check out his incredible office
!) and the passion he has for his work shone through so strongly. We sat for almost an hour chatting about how he shoots and his memories from past adventures trying to capture shots. Having long admired Gray’s work, it was great to be able to meet him in person and talk with him about his unique vision and inspirations first hand. Very inspiring.
The two prints are from Gray’s ever expanding Au Parc
and A La Plage
collections, and both show off his incredible talent for ariel photography. The Au Parc series captures beautiful parks filled with nature and city-goers and he was inspired to create the series during an afternoon picnic in Central Park, and has since captured parks in NYC, Chicago, London and Barcelona. Given blue is one of the colours I decorate with most at home it was easy for me to pick this Barcelona Swimmers
print. Not only do I really like how graphic the photograph is, but the vibrancy of the blue hues is incredible, too. I almost feel like I want to jump straight into it every time I look at! It’s the perfect hero piece to anchor the gallery wall in my office, don’t you think? The second print sits above my TV and helps to add a splash of perspective and hue to an otherwise quiet corner. The Notting Hill
print reminds me of spending time in one of my favourite – and most colourful – parts of West London. So much #makeyousmilestyle right there, huh?! Head over to Gray’s blog
today to read a fun little interview I did with his team! What do you think of my new art, folks? Do you like to hang photographic prints in your home?
