It began with globes. Then it was maps. Then it was antique collectibles from the World’s Fair, and from there it was just about anything they could get their hands on. All my life, my parents have been collectors, amassing everything from a golf course windmill, to “Buildings of Disaster,” to bank giveaways from the midcentury, to folk art from around the world. Today, my Dad’s office is a shrine to a life spent collecting – a personal museum fit for a museum designer.
All credit for this post is due to James Wilson, also known as Mr. Secret Forts because his Out/About/Here/There cel phone image roundups have always been some of my favorite posts out there (no pun intended), and quite frankly I always wanted to rip the idea off. So, I decided to gather about six months worth of photos off of my phone (until half a year ago my phone camera was broken so I could barely even take a photo), many of which have already popped up on my instagram, but I figured I should put them all in one place, for the sake of posterity. Enjoy.
I finally got my film processed from New York Fashion Week, so here are my photos from the inside last week.
