Junk Drawers

So there I was thinking I had a new themed art idea. Junk drawers. On a recent trip to visit Peter, I noticed his kitchen junk drawer and photographed it proclaiming, "What a great idea for a series!" Peter e-mailed me the following week saying, "Check out this print" and attached this URL.
It seems the artist Paho Mann has been photographing junk drawers since 2000. He says, "My work explores the persistent mark of individuality in a culture that brands, packages, and relentlessly promotes conformity. Even among those who attempt to fit into society, there is an amazing wealth of information each individual reveals in near-privacy, spaces such as junk-drawers..." Click here to see more of his junk drawers. (He does medicine cabinets too.)

What a fantastic idea for a series, Ronna! :D It would be a deliciously voyeuristic peek into what we choose to keep! :D
