Everyone has a favourite object – the thing they’d save if the house was on fire.

It’s often been carried from home to home; it can even have been passed down through generations of the family.

It can be a reminder of a person or a time in their life or it’s a passion, a hobby, something that is a great release from everyday life.

Very often it has little or no monetary value – or if it does, the value is in the passion, not the money.

Holding on to these objects that are precious to us is something we all have in common.

In this blog I am photographing people from all over the UK, from all walks of life, generations, creeds and races and interviewing them about that object and what it means to them.

I want to highlight our common humanity and celebrate the personal and seemingly ordinary.
