Still Lifes Capture What People Would Save in a Fire

This afternoon, I’ve been totally taken by The Burning House, a public collection of user-submitted photos that answers the question, “If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.”

They’re mostly creative folk, so the photos are quite nice, though there’s the drawbackof the repetitious MacBooks and notebooks and cameras, etc. But there’s plenty of diversity, like this guy, with whom I share zero things, save for the car key:

Some of these kinda read like “What’s in my bag right now?” but, still fascinating, methinks.
