Michael Warren Exhibits "Somebodies" at TEDx Boston
Michael Warren exhibited his project "Somebodies" this past weekend at the TEDx conference in Boston. TEDx is an individual initiative based on the TED conferences that bring together people in the community to share ideas and collaborations. Warren's photographs were displayed for the conference's participants to view before they began the panel discussions.
"Somebodies" is Warren's ongoing photographic project about people and the stuff they love. The people featured were asked to bring something-living, dead, or somewhere in between-that has a significant meaning to them and to tell the story of their relationship with it. For example, a man explains how now that his wife has passed away, the Kleenexes that she used to leave around the house no longer annoy him but rather remind him of her.
Warren's photographs were chosen for TEDx Boston as everyone featured is from the New England area. The exhibition was a chance for him to meet new people interested in sharing their story for the project. Warren hopes to expand the project to include over 200 people.
