Peter York interviews Andreas von Einsiedel on “A Photographic record of Chelsea”
Andreas von Einsiedel specialises in the photography of interiors, of private homes and historic and heritage buildings. His work has taken him across Europe, recording the ways in which owners decorate their homes, and thus how they display themselves. In this illustrated talk Andreas will talk recount the styles he encounters and the stories they tell, with particular reference to Chelsea interiors.
Interviewed by trend-spotter Peter York*, he will explain how he approached making a photographic record of Julian Barrow’s Tite Street studio, and his forays into the Sketch Club and the Sloane Club and other Chelsea locations. Chelsea is often the creative starting point for changing notions of lifestyle and design, and trends started here can spread internationally, propelled by the photographic image.
*Peter York is an author and broadcaster, best known for writing Harpers & Queen’s “The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook” with Ann Barr.
