Paho Mann (chelsea post 7)

I admire the technicality and preciseness of each image Paho Mann presents. He is a contemporary photographer and professor at UNT. I am interested in his Junk Drawer series. He takes junk drawers from individuals and photographs them in a sterile black background and perfect lighting. The idea behind this series is to see how individuals privatize the human desire to collect and categorize. These drawers reveal more about the person's identity than sometimes a portrait may.

I like the idea of this project and I may expand this idea within my project, photographing objects and relics that people can identify with a place, event, or another cherished person.
