It’s amazing how much a person's favorite thing can tell about himself. It’s something you don’t really need to survive but at the same time you can’t imagine your life without it. I asked different people what things they considered most important in their lives and created a series of portraits revealing intimate details about people’s experiences, worries, and joys. 

And what is your favorite thing that you can’t imagine your life without?
