The Room Portraits

In Japan, apartment leases are usually a two-year contract.

Apparently I've been living in my apartment for two years now
and so I went to renew my contract yesterday.

My apartment is super tiny.

I'm not sure about the exact floor space.
I usually explain it as two and a half cartwheels long.

But whatever.
It's tiny.

And so when I saw these photos by photographer Menno Aden
I sort of felt an instant connection to these photos.

A tiny apartment/room connection.

I love how he captures the room from above as a work of art.

And it makes me wonder what my apartment
looks like from above like this.

I guess I've got another two years to figure it out.

  1. I really like these pictures, reminds me of my sister's former apartment in Paris. It was also a tiny space efficient flat.

    1. Yay for tiny spaces! Easier to clean and to heat ;D
