The Memory of My Wardrobe, a project by Finnish photographer Ida Taavitsainen, explores the personal narratives given to clothing inherited or simply handed down to her by her family. Over the years, she acquired a lot of clothes, many once belonging to people she never knew—her great-great-grandmother, for instance—but all with family ties. The clothes interested her: What were their histories? What had they gone through before she started wearing them? What stories do a ripped seam or the faded color of a fabric tell? Here, her care­fully composed still-life photographs and brief anecdotes tell a charming tale—a family album full of stories but without people.
