Imagine you’re confronted with the question: what do you take from your burning house?  Money, photographs, your laptop, or your favorite pair of old shoes?  What is so important in your life that you cannot live without? That is exactly what our guest Foster Huntington set out to discover when he started the Burning House Tumblr project – a collection of submitted photographs and drawings that reveals what we value most.
