Ashley Barber is a portrait, interiors, journalist and fashion photographer and illustrator.
His project The Selby offers an insider’s view of creative individuals in their personal spaces with an artist’s eye for detail. The Selby began in June 2008 as a website, theselby.com, where Todd posted photo shoots he did of his friends in their homes. Requests quickly began coming in daily from viewers all over the world who wanted their homes to be featured on the site. The Selby’s website became so influential — with up to 100,000 unique visitors daily—that within months, top companies from around the world began asking to collaborate.
These joint projects have included ad campaigns and collaborations with Louis Vuitton, FENDI, Nike, Microsoft, Hennessy, Habitat, Slowear, Ikea, Heineken and a solo show at colette. Todd also has a monthly home column in the Observer Magazine, a monthly fashion column in Le Monde’s M Magazine and frequently contributes to publications such as Casa Brutus Japan and New York Times T Magazine.
