Mirrors & Windows.

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

A collaboration between photographers Gabriele Galimberti (the artist behind Delicatessen with love and Toy Stories) and Edoardo Delille, Mirrors and Windows explores bedrooms of girls around the world between the ages of 18 and 30.

According to Galimberti's website, these rooms are "where girls read, love, dream, work and play...[they] are mirrors of the history, personality, culture, obsessions and social status of the girls that occupy them, but are also unique windows into [their] worlds."


From top to bottom: Cristina, 23, Colombia; Kai, 23, China; Altidon, 19, Haiti; Sandhini, 31, India; Vanessa, 19, United States; Gessiane and Jessica, 20, Brazil; Mickayla, 23, London; Lena, 24, Ukraine.

What would a photograph of your own space reflect? Mine would feature crowded windowsills; a mess of Polaroids; my giant Pete Townshend print; a (slightly creaky) yellow four-poster bed.
Visit Gabriele Galimberti's website, here, and Edoardo Delille's, here. Thanks, My Modern Met.

I love this.

It would be cool to see a progression of the same girls. 18-30...I graduate out of that age bracket next year, and I've had so many rooms that all looked so different.

OMGosh this is awesome. I have no idea what my space would reflect but it probably would include lots of books. :)

Wow, Gabriele is on a roll - love everything he's done.

Sarah, that's such a wonderful idea! I'd love to see how these spaces change over time.

Dee, the best thing to have in a room! :)

I would love to have a bedroom that is just a bedroom instead of my bedroom/living room/office/etc. I'd have a bed, dresser, nightstand, and maybe a bookshelf.

There'd be a lot of books, that's for sure...probably a lot of clutter, also, if this was a realistic room-survey!

I love that even the simplest of these bedrooms can hold so much personality. A current photograph of my room would show stacks of books and old New Yorkers, an always-overflowing basket of laundry, a carved elephant from Thailand, and an oversized, tweed armchair.

Shoko said...

Brianna, I love that idea.

Julie, clutter adds character :)

Kathy, overflowing basket of laundry - yes!

These are so insightful! Mine would look a but messy right now. Littered with books and draped with clothes. Lol.
