“What’s in your bag?” — a Photo Project

diptych

Atlanta photog Jason Travis approached attractive young people and asked them to hand over their bags and man-purses. Instead of slapping him, they complied.

Jason put a new spin on the purse-flotsam photo with two secret ingredients:

#1: A meticulous grid layout that lends the project an air of sculpture.

#2: His startling subjects: a mom who carries Versace glasses with her child’s pacifiers; a tattooed girl with a copy of Logan’s Run; and this collection of tiny hats.

Inspired to photograph your own carry-alongs? There’s no better place to begin than the “What’s In Your Bag” pool on Flickr.
