The New Book by William Abranowicz

One of my favourite home features in Martha Stewart Living appeared in the 2003 September issue: Snapshots of Home. The article, written by Mimi Read, details the renovation of a ranch-style home in upstate New York owned by photographer William Abranowicz. The photographs for the feature are, of course, by Abranowicz himself and portray a home filled with style and a deep love for his family.
Abranowicz has been working with Martha Stewart Living as a freelance photographer since the magazine was founded in 1990: he shot the features The Family Kitchen and Holiday Desserts in the very first issue of the magazine, as well photographs for the Good Things section. He still photographs for the magazine to this day!
Abranowicz photographed one of my favourite book covers: Martha's American Wreaths. 

His new book comes out next week on September 11th. American Originals profiles the homes of Americans with a very definite sense of style. Some of the homes portrayed in the book belong to American celebrities, such as Bette Midler and Ellen DeGeneres. Some belong to everyday Americans, such as Stephen Earle and his partner. (Earle was once a style editor at Martha Stewart Living). Martha, of course, is also featured in the book. Photographs of her Bedford kitchen are included. Below are some photos from the book. I'm certainly going to be picking up a copy!
