Your house is burning. You have to get out fast. Suddenly you are forced to prioritize, editing down a lifetime of possessions to a mere handful. Now you must decide: Of all the things you own, what is most important to youThe practical Your laptop, your smartphone, what you need to keep working and stayin touchThe valuable Your money, your jewelry, the limited edition signed poster in the living roomThe sentimental The watch your late grandfather gave you, the diary you kept as a teenagerWhat you choose to bring with you speaks volumes about who you are and what you believe in-your interests, your background, your view of life. With contributions from all over the world, The Burning House is an eye-opening pictorial meditation on materialism; an in-depth, intensely personal interview contained in a single question; a revealing window into the human heart.
