Name The Burning House
Location New York
If your house was burning, what would you take with you? The answer says a lot about your values and background, according to photographer Foster R. Huntington. The Burning House is a living gallery of photographs of the items chosen by people from all backgrounds, from all around the world. “It’s a philosophical conflict between what’s practical, valuable, and sentimental. You’re forced to prioritize and boil down a life of accrued possessions into what you can carry out with you,” Foster says.
