AT Europe: Paris - A Collage of Your Interior from Constance Meyer

Paris-based photographer Constance Meyer makes photographic patchwork collages of people's interiors that they hang on the walls like family snapshots immortalizing a decorative moment in time. Making a Flickr set of your interior is nothing new, but it seems a bit odd to line the walls of your place with photos of your own place, doesn't it? "It is very narcissistic," says Meyer, who also does photo collages of life events, boutiques, movie sets and brasseries. "But it really has quite an impact on people to see their interiors arranged in their best light like that."...

Meyer comes by for a couple of hours, shoots what catches her eye (with any special requests taken into consideration) and arranges the photos into a collage of at least 50 photos which is then printed on high quality paper to any size and mounted on a backing that allows it to be hung without a frame. Last month, French Elle D├ęcoration liked the idea so much that they suggested a Meyer-inspired DIY strategy, but it seems that not everyone considers themselves a photographer, even in our DIY digital age. "A lot of people have been calling," Meyer says.
