“Shooting the cabin [“The Answer Is Risom,” December/January 2013] was a challenge because there are photos taken for Life that are pretty iconic,” says Jeremy Floto, one half of New York photography duo Floto + Warner, with his wife, Cassandra Warner. “It was interesting to revisit the place decades later and see how much it’s changed and evolved,” he continues. Warner braved an airplane ride in a Piper Cherokee Six to capture aerial views for the story: “When Jens [Risom] built that house, there was nothing surrounding it,” she says. “Up in the air you see all of these patches of development, but on the ground you still feel very isolated. You wouldn’t know that there are neighbors just a couple acres back.”
