An Unconventional Puzzle
Show us what’s in your bag and we’ll tell you who you are. That is the motto of Jason Travis’s photographic project Persona. The home page shows a mosaic of people and their personal effects. Click on a segment to get a closer look. Each picture consists of two parts. The upper half is a portrait of a person, standing against a background that matches their style.
The lower half of the image shows the person’s belongings, sitting on a surface that matches the objects themselves. Although we all know how diverse the people of the world are, the variety of colors, faces and styles presented by Travis is still surprising and beautiful.
