John Dummer Photography
After writing about Dutch stylist/textile designer Marieke van Proosdij yesterday, I heard from her and she told me that photographer John Dummer shot the rooms in her home so of course I had to check out this other amazing talent from the Netherlands. I'd not heard of him before so I was surprised and pleased to come across his portfolio and I know that you'll enjoy browsing it today as well.
Food, stills, people, travel, interiors... it's all there and each photo captivates and draws you in. I'm drawn to a photographer who can present what is real but also give you an element of fantasy and help you to flex your imagination of what also could be. John's photos do this so, so well. It's really an art.
I've chosen these 6 images to share with you (please click on them to enlarge for details) because all have a real mood to them that feels cozy and welcoming but not styled to absolute perfection, there is a casual elegance here that feels lived in and loved. The tea and blankets, the worn hardwood floors, wallpaper that doesn't continue over the door or onto the rest of the wall (love this!), and those transom windows... I dream of having transom windows in the house that exists in my mind...
Do you recall when I shared with you the bed & breakfast, Bed of Flowers, owned by Floriene Bosch, also in the Netherlands near the border of Germany? Well that amazing B&B was photographed by John too.
