A Person’s Life as Told By The Items They Touch Throughout the Day

Paula Zuccotti documents the series of objects people have touched throughout the day in the fascinating project “Every Thing We Touch.” The self-taught photographer traveled the globe taking pictures of what people of various ages, culture, and professions touch from chaps and a saddle by a Texan cowboy to the colorful clothes of an anime-loving female. Each meticulously collected items spins a story about each person as told through the objects they own, consume, and choose and it’s quite amazing how much you can tell about someone’s job, hobby, and the people they deal with from a day’s worth of held items.
