Editorial Reviews

"...Londonbased journalist Rob Meyers has assembled the interior-design version of those stars-without their-makeup slide shows that never fail to fascinate. The book revolves around a simple premise: Meyers sent disposable cameras to dozens of celebrities, designers and fellow journalists with one simple instruction: Whatever else you photograph, you must shoot the inside of your icebox. Without stylists, lighting and fancy equipment, the resulting photographs aim to show us, unfiltered, how people really live." -Los Angeles Times"An intimate insight into the homes of some of the world's most interesting people, Behind Closed Doors by Rob Meyers is a unique collection of interior photographs. Meyers sent a batch of disposable cameras out to friends in the magazine and art worlds, asking them to photograph their favorite parts of their homes. To his surprise, many sent back a full camera." -EditorAtLarge.com"The antithesis of most books about interiors..." -Interior Design Magazine“The flash-stained, hardly-styled photos take us into these celebrated people’s houses as they’re lived in, and the results offer a special glimpse of their remarkable lives.” -Metrosource“If you’re looking for another glossy decorating book filled with perfect lighting and expertly tufted pillows, this isn’t it. Behind Closed Doors is a raw, unstyled glimpse into 25 celebrity homes…It’s a voyeur’s dream.” –Manhattan Magazine   “What happens with disposable cameras are given to 25 high-profile musicians, photographers, artists and bloggers? Quite simply—a stunning photographic collection of their stylish interiors. The photos are revealing, edgy and raw.” –Bal Harbour “I think the book is wonderful. All of my coffee table books showcase perfectly styled homes and I’m excited to add Behind Closed Doors to my collection.” –Life in Sketch
