Some of you may know about my little project called SPACES. I’ve been really fortunate to have such wonderful people participate and share their personal spaces with me and the rest of the internet. (Like Laala and Stijn who are both on Tumblr, for example).
Lately I’ve been contemplating on taking the project a notch higher by photographing the participant’s space myself. Take note, this is an experiment. The nature of this project isn’t to flaunt the interior design of someone’s apartment. Its goal is to give a more personal insight to a person’s way of life, how similar or different it may be, many miles away from us. I don’t know what the effect will be of personally interacting with the participant as I’ve always done it through email. It may improve the outcome or it may not. Like I said, it’s an experiment.
Personal spaces vary from your desk in your room where you work all the time, to that table in a coffee shop that you always go to for a cup of coffee while you read a book, or that hidden spot near your house where you retreat to for a quiet time. It could also mean your luggage if you’re someone who does not stay in one place for too long. It could be anything at all.
With that said, if you are interested in being the guinea pig for this new chapter of Spaces, please get in touch! You must be in Los Angeles to be considered. If you aren’t and you would still like to participate, email me. Check out the participants here.
