In 2014 I started a collection of photos showcasing the contents of twenty woman's purses. It was fun, intriguing, and extremely personal.
The project went from Huffington Post France Républicaine online to Vanity Fair Italia online. To so many blogs and websites around the world, even on Pinterest. I lost count after a while. They found their way to Russia, China, Portugal. In so many different languages, I became very reliant on Google Translate.
It was also an honor to have nine pieces shown in 2014's Terrain, an art show in Spokane, Washington.
