THE MEMORY OF MY WARDROBE. {Cover title: The Memory of My Wardrobe: Ida Taavitsainen.} Booth-Clibborn Editions, London, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Abrams, New York. 108 pp. with 57 ills. (56 col.). 34 x 28 cm. ISBN 9781861543462 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: 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.
