The Psychology of Collecting

  • Books: In and Out of Context

These two books reveal the beauty behind starting a collection by showing the identity of a collector. Looking at someone's collection enables us to know who he/she is by seeing what objects they choose to keep and preserve for years. These objects are then passed to generations due to their sentimental value. The out of context book contains details, nuances, and imagery of stones that are collected by one person. Each stone is different in color, shape and texture. Therefore, they represent time and space. This book displays stones photographed on white background to reveal their beauty and details that are rarely noticed by others.
