A view from within

I’ve been obsessed today with a photo series in which the photographer captured a portion of his friends’ lives by peering into their bags and seeing what they considered necessary enough to carry with them each day. Touted a “voyeuristic delight,” the Persona series is strikingly insightful, and extremely telling about each individual.

The deeper I dove into the series — relating to some, surprised by others, realizing that we obviously are not always what we seem — it got me thinking about what my belongings say about me. It compelled me to get out my cracked iPhone and snapped a ghetto version of the contents of my bag.

So tell me: what do you see? And, what do the contents of your bag say about you?
