Material World

2 Sep

I recently came across this really interesting art project by Peter Menzel.  Peter traveled around the world to a variety of different countries, and in each one photographed an average family with all their possessions.   The differences are striking to see. 

It really makes you reconsider all the stuff you own, and what’s really important.

Some highlights:

Tokyo

Mali

Western Samoa

India

Russia

Aren’t these pictures fascinating?  Check out more here:
