The photo project “Wardrobe” attempts to look at a society snapshot in a modern European city through capturing the image of personal belongings. The series includes portraits of people of various ages, gender, social status, with their wardrobe at the background, which can be orderly or filled without any system at all, abundant or scarce, depending on the personality of the owner. The organizational element of each shot is the clue interpretation of the wardrobe space, the attempts of the viewer to decipher the features of conscience of an impersonalized, as far as possible, model in chaos or a systematic ordering of his or her belongings.
