Standing Stories were developed by Debra Folz Design, a Boston Massachusetts-based studio, which realizes furniture, tabletop and home accessory objects for exhibition and production through material exploration & conceptual curiosity.

Originally designed in 2010 and released as The Whole Story Photo Albums, they continue to be produced and sold as photo albums through our website and retailers.  In 2013, we partnered with an American bindery to produce the books in larger quantities, and incorporate the addition of printed content. The books are now produced as custom catalogs for large brands. 

We love to collaborate! Recent partnerships of note include renowned brands such as Helmut Lang and Tommy Hilfiger.
