This second set of images is by artist Melanie Willhide. Ms.Willhide’s computer (and back-up) drive were stolen and then returned and what happened next transformed her images. Read the article about how she dedicated her recent exhibition ( To Adrian Rodriguez, With Love,) to the thief that stole her computer.

Toy Stories by Gabriele Galimberti

Anyone doing environmental portraiture for their final? Mostly Lauren, because you’re working with people and their possessions! This artist travelled around the world and photographed children with their most prized possessions over the course of 18 months. These might be nice images to look at in terms of arrangement people with objects.
