These photographs show the dorm room that my roommate and I live in. When taking the photos, I did not move anything in my room. I wanted to show the way it really looked without trying to clean anything up. I chose to take straight on shots from the side or above to give the photos a more documentary feel. My goal was to show the atmosphere of the room, and let viewers decide what it says about who lives there.
I think what we choose to put in our rooms and the way we choose to arrange things can say a lot about us. Most people don’t like to have their living areas photographed without being able to clean up or organize them first. However, since it is my own room, I was able to take the photos with the room as it was.
