About the Author

Tom Blachford's photography has a way of connecting the familiar with the surreal, rendering functional, man-made structures into strange and beautiful dreams. Based in Melbourne, Australia, his fascination with texture and shape made for a natural transition into the world of architecture. Blachford's work has been featured in Domus, Wired, Curbed, Dwell, Vogue and Wallpaper*. Chris Menrad, a Southern California native, was drawn to Palm Springs in 1999 by its abundance of modernist architecture. He is a founding board member of the Palm Springs Modern Committee, an organization dedicated to the preservation of Desert Modern architecture, and a real estate agent specializing in architectural properties in the Coachella Valley. He lives in a Krisel-designed home, which was the first Palm Springs' Class One historic Krisel/Alexander-built house.


"A surreal ode to the California desert oasis of Palm Springs and its cache of pristine modernist architecture." --Architectural Digest "For many (our editorial staff included) it was love at first sight." --Cool Hunting "Tom Blachford's noirish images highlight the mystery and beauty of desert architecture." --Curbed "This collection of richly colored photographs, taken by moonlight, is lled with darkly glamorous, low-slung buildings; 1950s cars sit on their drives, waiting to take their residents on to the next cocktail." --Newsweek As seen in: Escapism Magazine, The Guardian, Hemispheres Magazine, Hyperallergic, PIN-UP, Popular Photography, Vanity Fair, Vogue Living and We Heart.
