Persona, photos by Jason Travis

TMN’s link-description for this photo series nails it: “Pictures of what (extremely similar) Atlantans carry around in their bags”. Once you get over your wish that the photographer had cast his net a little more broadly, there’s still a lot of interest and wit here. The things these people carry at once offer us a view of people’s public personae and a peek into what remains hidden. There’s a whole gigantic “What’s in your bag?” photo pool on flickr, a reminder that this sort of hiding/sharing/defining is by no means limited to hipsters in Atlanta.
