Photographer Lust: Warren Smith

Warrensmith123

Lately I've been admiring the work of British photographer Warren Smith. He has an uncanny ability to capture not only what's in front of him, but also the sense that an entire world exists beyond the scope of his lens. I wonder where the stairway leads in the photo above? And who left the door open in the photo below? Were they coming or going?

Here's a brilliant example of how to blend modern styling with the historical bones of an old home; note the moldings painted white and the mix of ornate wallpaper with the clean lines of the furniture. My favourite little detail is the light fixture in the kitchen—the space age pendant lamp hanging from a 19th-century ceiling medallion is such a brilliant study in contrast!

Smith also takes hauntingly beautiful still life shots. I totally feel a wedding inspiration board coming on with these flowers.

And it can be really tough to capture the rough, textural details of stone, ceramic and wood, but these images makes me feel I could reach into the screen and touch them.

A more traditional interior shot (love the muted mauves and greys!) is treated with the exact same balance of gravity and levity…

…as this casual dining arrangement. I would happily curl up with a book and a cup of tea in either spot! Ooh, and what's that reflected in the mirror? My imagination is spinning!

    I think I may have seen some of his work in Living Etc? I love his use of texture, just gorgeous.

    What gorgeous photos! I love the juxtaposition of old and new — along with the air of mystery in each photo you aptly showcased.

    I love that first image. You get the sense that someone was just sitting there. The seats almost look like they’d feel warm.
