From renowned photographer Melanie Acevedo and founding editor of domino magazine Dara Caponigro, comes a lush dive into the private worlds and gorgeous homes of creative trailblazers in art, design, and fashion around the world.
The Authentics is a deep exploration into the substance of style through evocative photography and stimulating interviews that seek to unravel the tenets of taste and talent. The featured homeowners, all true originals, help define our culture--including interior designer Miles Redd, actress Peggy Lipton, and Libertine designer Johnson Hartig. With an artful mix of color and black-and-white photography that includes portraits, interiors, gardens, and still-life shots of flowers, food, and more, The Authentics examines the lives and work of these visionaries in an inspiring tribute to confidence, originality, and the power of finding one's own voice.
