Since 2009, photographer Jessica Naples has been creating portraits of different individuals through a collection of their personal possessions. Each cluster of possessions includes a variety of random knick knacks, forgotten items cast away into drawers and everyday objects that people conventionally would not use to describe ourselves.

Her clusters are brightly colored and feature some very unexpected items. While some of the clusters by Jessica Naples are easily matched to a particular personality, such as the collection of make-up and beauty accessories, others are slightly more ambiguous. From dice to dolls to rolls of old film, pieces shot by Jessica Naples creatively capture a wide variety of personalities, interests and ages. What would your collection look like?
