The New York Times is releasing its extensive archive of photographs from the last century, some never before seen by the public, on its microsite, The New York Times Store, making them available for purchase for your home. To celebrate, The NYT has asked five noted interior designers, including Vicente Wolf, Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler, Laura Kirar, and Thom Filicia, to each curate a collection of 10 of their favorite photographs. Ranging from scenes of contemporary life (swimmers on a lake in 1997) to historic images (a pair holding hands at Martin Luther King Jr.'s funeral in 1968), the designers' selections are a telling reflection of each of their aesthetics and are available for purchase online today.
The designers have chosen special mats and frames for each image to complement their collections. Each exhibition-quality photograph can be printed in a range of sizes, from 11 by 14 inches to 20 by two inches, framed or unframed. Prices begin at $199.
I chatted with Jonathan Adler about his curated photography collection — stay tuned for that interview later today!
