Portraits of People Shelved with Their Possessions

Inspired by his father’s obsession with adding new shelves to walls, photographer and furniture design student Darragh Casey decided to shoot some family portraits that featured family members themselves shelved alongside some of their prized possessions. His project spans three generations of his family and is titled “Shelving the Body”.

Here’s a time-lapse video that shows the 10 hour shoot in 10 minutes:
