Martyn Thompson

Photographer, Martyn Thompson, began his career making clothes before deciding to document them instead. He worked as a fashion photographer in Paris prior to moving to London where his scope broadened into the world of interiors and still life.

Over the past 30 years Thompson has collaborated with several designers - most notably a long relationship with Ilse Crawford. He has worked to create the visual messaging of leading global brands such as Hermés, Tiffany and Ralph Lauren while also authoring two books, “Interiors” and “Working Space: An insight into the Creative Heart”.

A resident of New York now for many years, Thompson has founded Martyn Thompson Studio, a multidisciplinary outfit that has branched out from Thompson’s distinctive photography practice into a number of creative expressions.

An aesthetic, anchored in the touch of the hand, stems from Thompson’s love of craft, and runs through the studio’s work, defined by a tactile and painterly language.

The studio has evolved to include textile and wallpaper design, homewares, limited edition art, as well as art direction for editorial projects.
