This Maryam Toson 'Wants and Needs' photo project provides a bit of perspective on what different individuals' deem as necessities versus what they see as desires.

The constant mix-up between the two ideas provoked the artist to compare and contrast these drastically different concepts. It becomes interesting to see the variety within these prints as one person's want may be another's need, creating a cyclical definition of both terms.

Implications - As for myself, these photos may not be a necessity of mine, but I'm sure glad they exist. The emotional honesty exuded by these photographs really speak to me on a personal level.
