All I Own – Swedish photographer Sannah Kvist’s portraits of European hipsters with all of their possessions is a fascinating project revolving around our consumption behavior. She asked friends and acquaintances to place all their belongings in the corner of a room. Her goal was to create a portrait of the Swedish generation, born and raised in the 80’s.
It’s remarkable how much of our consumption is determined by our environment and the media we are engaging with. The current deleveraging period we’re experiencing reminded us that possessions shouldn’t own us, and that the majority of the things we own should serve multiple purposes, is high-quality and as sustainable as possible.
