Thanks to Guido's Flickring us from Matter yesterday, we discovered Portia Wells and her charming "West Coast Portraits" of all things aside from people. As she writes: Identities are constructed through the items we own-- they begin to act as portraits of ourselves. Silhouettes are often referred to as the poor man's portrait and are thought to reveal a sort of inner truth. Very West Coast, no? Guido also says these are none too expensive, which is another nice thing.
