. . . Imagine how your day would look if you recorded everything that you touched.

*Features exposed spine showing stitching and enabling book to open completely flat!*

What's the first thing we touch when we wake up?
How do our favourite things reveal our hopes and fears?
Can objects tell the story of our lives?
Imagine how your day would look if you recorded everything that you touched.
From smartphone to soap, from spice to spoon... what if they were all brought together in one place? Would they tell a bigger story?
Driven by this idea, Paula Zuccotti travelled around the world to find people from an incredible array of ages, cultures, professions and backgrounds. She asked them to document every object they touched in 24 hours. Then she gathered those objects together and photographed them in a single shot.
From a toddler in Tokyo to a cowboy in Arizona, from a cleaner in London to a cloister nun in Madrid, Every Thing We Touch is their story told through the objects they own, consume, need, choose, treasure and can't let go.
Each image is mystery, a story, a work of art. Each is a moment in time: a life and a world reflected back at us.
