Thom Filicia’s 10 Favorite Photos

Thom Filicia New York Times photographyI’m always looking for great prints — whether I have the wall space or not. The archives of Condé Nast and The New York Times always seem like great resources, but daunting! I don’t have the patience to go through all those photos. So I was excited to see The Times has asked five interior designers to pick their favorite 10 photos. Here are two of my favorites from Thom Filicia’s picks. Love him!

Want to see the rest of Thom Filicia’s picks?

Pretty stunning Alaskan sky photo but I don’t know, not incredibly special.

I love the way the man is just at the upper right corner and the linear rice paddies create a great graphic effect.

This photo is a winner. It’s actually an aerial photo of ice skaters and their shadows. I thought it was an illustration but it’s not. Pretty cool, huh?

The prints cost $199 for an 11×14; $389 for a 16×20 and $529 for a 20×24. A bit pricey. Do you have any great resources for affordable prints? I’d love to hear about them.

    I love these photos! Another great place to buy photos is the Library of Congress Prints & Photographs Division: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/
    It is amazing as you can even buy inexpensive Walker Evans prints from the 30s etc…like the famous photos of the house and family of an Alabama cotton sharecropper or photos by Dorothea Lange. Enjoy!!
