Everything You Own, Left Outside

What would it look like if you went into your home, dragged everything you owned outside and took a photo of it? Well, it would probably look like you were having a garage sale, but maybe it’d make you think about why you own the things you own, or what you could live without. Photographer Huang Quingjun took photos of people with all of their belongings in cities across China, and it’s fascinating to see what people keep in their homes depending on where they live, and how wealthy they are. The photos also remind me that I should probably take some time this weekend to put together a Goodwill bag and get rid of stuff I no longer need. Oh, all the things I keep for no reason other than I don’t want to let them go.
