Material World

In class we will take time to look into the book Material World. We talked a little bit about the book today. 16 photographers traveled to 30 nations around the globe and took picture of the families outside their homes, surrounded by ALL of its possessions.

Tonight, look around your bedroom and picture in your mind what your portrait would like if one of the photographers visited you. Explain the mental picture in your head and then explain how you feel about it and what your thoughts are about the possessions that were in your bedroom. What if the photographer took a picture of all the possessions in your entire home? Do you think that you could give up some of the possessions? Do you need all of these possessions?
