Mark Cowper

I love the idea behind Mark Cowper's "Ethelburga Tower: At home in a high-rise" exhibit currently at the Geffrye Museum - "Cowper approached his neighbours and asked to photograph their living rooms, just as he found them at the moment he made the request, in order to capture the way the residents are living. The resulting collection of images gives a fascinating insight into how these near-identical architectural shells have been shaped by the contrasting lifestyles, interests, and tastes of the residents into distinctly individual homes."

What a fantastic idea for anyone living in a multi-unit building - and a great way to get to know your neighbors?
