Robert Holden is asking people a simple question: what would you take with you if your house was burning down? The limitations create "a conflict between what's practical, valuable and sentimental." Pictured above is the selection by photographer Porter Hovey. Why the shuttlecock? Hovey explains that's is actually a Christmas ornament:
A nice reminder of where I’m from — people never realize how cosmopolitan Kansas City really is. From an aerial view, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art looks like a gigantic badminton court with gigantic shuttlecocks scattered about on the lawn. The Nelson also has one of the best collections photography there is in the world. It always inspires me.
What would you take with you?
