Almost each and every one of you love your bedrooms. It’s the only place that allows one to be their true self. It’s a place to stay away from the chaos happening in the outside world. At times your room can be messy but still, it’s the best place that you’d find in the whole world. And in one way bedrooms show the real personalities of people.
Maybe that is why you find it interesting to have a glimpse of someone else’s room. So being interested in this topic photographer Barbara had created this project “American Bedrooms”. She travels around the USA capturing the bedrooms of Americans and showing how different living styles of American people can be. So scroll down to have a look at these candid photographs.
This amazing idea of photographing average Americans in their bedrooms had sparked in her mind in 2016. After seeing how her bedroom looks, she had figured out that every room tells a personal story. Afterward, she had begun to think about capturing the bedrooms of people from all around the USA.

After she shared the concept with her friends they had loved it, and she started out by photographing the rooms of her friends. At a point, you might think whether it had been easy for her to take pictures of people’s rooms. Well as she had shared with Bored Panda it had not been easy.

She found people who were fine with this through different ways like social media and printing cards. And she only photographs people who want to be a part of this project and it’s a rule she has. She said that at first, she builds up a friendly conversation with people and she lets them know about the project. Also, she had said that she never asks anyone to do anything that they don’t want.
