At home with interiors photographer François Halard

Francois Halard Arles home

Like thousands of others, I enjoyed the daily lockdown Polaroids of interiors photographer, François Halard. Sharing vignettes from his 18th century Arles home on Instagram, they’ve allowed an element of arty escapism from my own four walls during our enforced confinement.

Halard has spent his life photographing the intimate details of artists’ homes, including Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly, (some of which are included in his brilliant book, Visite Privee). In his own shabby chic home, documented by Vogue, it looks like he’s taken inspo from his favourite artists’ abodes, notably the legendary Horst P Horst shots of Twombly’s Italian apartment, displaying Roman busts, Twombly-style on mantlepieces and plinths among framed artworks, postcards and hundreds of books.
