Bachelor Pad: Inside The Home Of A Celebrity Home Photographer (NSFW)

As a director's assistant, Douglas Friedman worked with David Fincher on Fight Club, Se7ven, and The Game, and as a photographer he's shot interiors for the likes of Elle Décor, Wallpaper, and Domino.
But Doug's talent and style far exceed what he captures on camera — unsurprisingly, his fascination with architecture, design, and glamour have penetrated into his own life and home as well. We got a chance to flip the lens and get a look inside his polished bachelor pad. Believe us, a printer as big as a piano, lighting inside a bathtub, dead animal decor, and (of course) amazing (nude) photography are only some of the features we love about Doug's home. And, given that he now splits his time between NYC and L.A., we're just wondering if he needs a house-sitter to watch after all of his cool collectables.

"This is my studio where I spend a good deal of my time. The printer is as big as a piano and definitely gets in the way when I have more than four people over for dinner. And the deer came from a taxidermist in Houston. It was the smallest piece that they had."

"I don't cook and rarely spend time in the kitchen except to feed the dog. The painting to the right is from a great artist in Chicago called Brian Graves. When you look at it long enough, you realize it's the titles of all of Madonna's songs layered and layered and layered over each other. The tits are a friend of mine who shall remain nameless and the cock is from a summer trip to P-town. The marble statue of Charmain Mao is a from a famous marble quarry in Vietnam outside of Da Nang."

"This small collection of stuff is a bit of everything and it is always changing. The week before an Elk head was hanging in place of the Terry Richardson. The two sketches are from a flea market in Lisbon. I too, loath Hydrangeas but it was all they had at the corner market that morning."

"This is the meat of the apartment, small but terribly cozy, and the perfect way to waste a weekend away watching movies. The prints on the left are from fashion illustrator, Duncan. A lamp by Anthony Todd on the left, a table by Noguci, and a black leather chair from the '60s. All mixed up with antiques, flea market finds and a couple of "hand me downs" from my family."

"The print over the bed is from my next show, which I hope to have ready by the spring. It's a simple space, very comfortable and quiet."

"I take the Linus bike with me everywhere these days, the best way to get around NYC. The bronze torso is from Tobi Tobin in L.A. She's a genius, trust me. The armoire belonged to my father and the junk on top is a collection of things from my travels."

"I never liked taking a bath. This is why I am okay with the lamp being where it is. The photograph of the woman in diamonds is of Anna Molinari from a sitting in Milan a few years ago. The framed nautical scarves a from an antique store in Sag Harbor. The framed text (and its the alphabet written out) on the wall is a Keith Haring and the beaded skull was made by Huichol Indians in Mexico."
