Sharing has become the ultimate buzzword over the past couple of years; be it for temporary housing, car riding, tool libraries or online resources and knowledge. Sharing as a lifestyle is a way of fundamentally shifting the way you act in your everyday life and affects both you and the ones you are sharing with. It can also have great culminations on social trends and environmental behavior.
Within the framework of understanding and exploring sharing practices, this handmade photobook uncovers the people, who share a household, with the ultimate goal of creating a better understanding of their values, objectives, obstacles and habits. Their households were documented to reveal issues of spatial conflicts, privacy, communality and generosity.
The book consists of personal portraits of the residents and photographic documentation of their homes, interviews, and a card playing exercise revealing how much they share and how. The photos were shot with Nikon FM 10, on Ilford HP5 400 35mm film and printed on 8×10 pearl Ilford paper.
