If I photograph something physical, I no longer actually need it (talking possessions here). That’s what I’ve found. That nagging feeling of “should I keep this? Should I put this back in that box and back on that back shelf?…” is completely alleviated for me if I document it in a photo.

Untold flecks of my experience as a human live in some obscure folder somewhere deep in my photographic archives. Ticket stubs from trains in Austria, stuffed animals from way back, letters from friends. They’ve all been magically jammed into a rotating platter, digitally immortal.

And that’s why my apartment looks like this. I’m big into sparseness. Into liking everything I have and not being burdened by anything physical if possible. My idea of decor is a seamless white paper backdrop hanging from where I would have drapes, if I knew anything about how to procure them.

Studio life.
