In Focus: Photography Against Consumerism

Hans Aarsman

How often does it happen, that you leave the shop without making the purchase after all? Hans Aarsman This project invites us to consider our compulsion to own, to keep and to collect. It invites us to slim down our addiction to material things, using photography as a space and money saving device. Contributions to this display are welcome.
