‘All I own’ – Gathering Together All Your Worldly Possessions

Swedish photographer Sannah Kvist asked a selection of students to gather together all they owned for a snapshot of what it takes to live. It’s quite striking how little many of the participants actually own but Sannah points out this is the first generation of Swedes who earn less than their parents, young folk who don’t own property and are constantly on the move. The project attempts to question our perception of consumerism’s stranglehold, naturally you just end up imagining yourself surrounded by everything you own. If you’re also a 90’s bank statements/free totes/ VHS hoarder this might be a worrying peek into a dark future. (IH)
