Things Created By People was founded in August 2014 by Thomas Baldwin, Adam Cecil, and Natalia Lehaf.

The content of this publication is in the name: these are things created by people. Our goal is to showcase these things, whether it be writing, music, video, photography, or beyond, and to enter into conversations with artists about their work. Things Created By People is a celebration of human creation in all of its shapes and forms.

Thomas Baldwin


Thomas Baldwin lives in Lefferts Gardens and works in Chelsea. You’ll regret asking him about his interests such as German art or how to ship art. He won’t stop talking about it. He once got a second degree sunburn at camp.
