Think about the various rooms in your home - your living room, bedroom, office, etc.

Think about the items that you have in these rooms. Are there paintings, sculptures, records, sports equipment, posters or toys? Do you think the things we surround ourselves with are a “reflection” of who we are?

 

A documentary-style series of black and white photographs by photographer Terrence A. Reese (TAR) of renowned Americans in their personal living spaces - environments that reflect their persona.
