ny times: coney island boardwalk

I shot part of a story for the ny times recently about all the places the reclaimed wood from the coney island boardwalk has ended up. Including right here in Venice at the home of Travis Lett, chef slash co-owner of my favorite restaurant (really our collective favorite if we’re being honest, right?) Gjelina. (This was a little peek I offered on instagram).

It was honestly one of my top 5 favorite homes (designed by Gjelina designer Sam Marshall) full of glass and amazing, beautiful light. Can’t wait to share some more of the images that didn’t make it into the story as soon as I have clearance.
