Lauren Greenfield’s “Favorite Spaces,” featuring will.i.am, Tony Hawk, Todd Oldham, and more

The New York Times commissioned Lauren to shoot a portfolio for its luxury real estate magazine, Key, that looks at “six homebodies and what they love about their houses” and features interviews by Edward Lewine. The homebodies—who include Black Eyed Peas founder will.i.am, pro skateboarder Tony Hawk, and designer extraordinaire Todd Oldham—are people you know, but you probably didn’t know them quite this intimately before.

Here’s a look at the story as it appeared in this past Sunday’s edition of the Times and at the individual portraits themselves:

"If I hadn't spent a lot of time on this lake, I would never have written this book," says Northern Vermont–based author Gish Jen, whose novel "World and Town" comes out this month. Photo by Lauren Greenfield for The New York Times.
