An Open Letter to IKEA

By Livingthedreamrtw @livingdreamrtw
Dear IKEA,
An Open Letter to IKEAMy name is Jeremy, and I am a travel writer, photographer, and frequent shopper at IKEA. 
Every time I go into your stores, as I did this past weekend, I am amazed by the collection of furniture, accessories, and decorations you are able to sell around the world.  I can easily spend several hours exploring your kitchens and living room options, not to mention the home goods section at the end of your display floor.  Even when I go for just a quick purchase, I end up getting lost in fantasizing about my future home and all the ways I can build my dream design.
That is, until I get to that home goods department
Being a photography fan who specializes in scenery, flowers, and all things nature, I make sure to always visit your decoration section in the home goods department.  My special stop is to peruse what kind of canvas and poster based photography is available for purchase, and every time I leave disappointed to find the same images appearing on your shelves.

I can't help but think that you need a refresh, and my images would make a perfect fit alongside your impressive collection.  I've been printing my images on canvas at home for years, and they are not only amazing decorations on my walls, but also inspire friends and family to travel and decorate their rooms with their favorite photos.
I'm not here to say that all my photography would be a good fit for IKEA, but after taking over 27,000 images in 34 countries in North America, the Caribbean, Asia, the Middle East, and Europe, there are bound to be a few that are just right.

Unfortunately as I am a photographer by hobby and travel writer by profession, I do not have a storefront gallery in which to showcase my works.  It is with that reason why I post my open letter here to get your attention.
I'd love to show off my portfolio to you at your availability, and I would be happy to share my favorite works and passion for travel with your customers around the world.  It would truly be a match made in heaven to help showcase this great world we live in.  To get things started, the photos following this letter are just a select few of my favorites from my immense collection, and I would love to get your opinion on them and show you several more.
