Office Romance is Kathy Ryan’s photographic love song to life at her office. Mostly shot on the sixth floor of the landmark Renzo Piano-designed New York Times building, where she works as director of photography at The New York Times Magazine, Ryan captures moments of lumi­nous beauty in her daily routine. She welcomed us there to explore the architecture, the light, and to discuss how Office Romance began, first on her Instagram feed.
