Technically, your possessions should not be what define you, but it seems inevitable that they be a reflection of your character. Based on this notion, photographer Camilla Catrambone has created individual portraits of her family members, except that the images do not feature people at all (but instead depict their personal belongings). Even without peeking at the captions, the images speak for themselves as they represent Grandma Ilva and Grandpa Mario by showing what they own, do, and love.

While some of the shots signal traditional gender roles in a family, other items present unique interests and personal memories. Living in a materialistic world focused on property and ownership, the portraits lead us to question the distinction between what shapes our identity and possessions.
