If your personal possessions could tell a story, what would they say? Would they tell the tale of a young spirit through bubblegum- pink-hued accouterments, or the story of a worldly soul ready to journey wherever his finger lands on the globe with blue-tinted treasures? In her visually pleasing still life series, Monochrome, photographer Athena Melton explores the power color holds over our imagination, while suggesting narratives about the personal belongings she collects in each frame. Conjure up your own story about the people behind these strikingly monochrome possessions as you flip through Melton’s collection, after the jump.
