The Things They Carried

In 2010 Dave Kemp asked a hundred people to share anything in their wallets that connected to a database. He photographed the results and shared the images as an exhibit titled Data Collection. He described the project as “functioning as a simple, and very reductive, portrait of these individuals,” while explaining that “the project draws attention to the power and risks associated with these cards.” You can read more about it, and see more images, here.
