The Places We Live

Both the subject, and the method of presentation are worth looking, feeling, and thinking about. Here is a quote describing the project.

"Oddly, I feel like it is a very different thing putting these stories up on the web, as opposed to the book, magazine articles or exhibition. I had the blessings of all the people in the project to use the material for everything I wanted—I really only used homes where the people were quite eager to tell their stories. But still I somehow can't shake the nagging sensation that putting their homes and lives on the web is somehow different from the other mediums.

Is it that the viewing experience of the book, magazine or exhibition is a more private experience than on the web? Or vice versa? Am I alone to have this feeling, or do others feel the same?"
