Peter Ross: Burroughs
Following his 2007 work documenting psychics, photographer Peter Ross' latest series takes on the metaphysical aura of stuff with his series of images of William Burroughs' possessions.
The items—from skull candles to walking sticks (pictured here)—all still sit in his Bowery Street apartment in NYC.
Iconic accessories, like Burroughs' worn shoes, take on new meaning thanks to Ross' detail-oriented eye.
Other less iconic pieces, including this handmade quilt, provide intimate glimpses into the late writer's life.
Shot against stark backgrounds, Ross' approach makes the objects into resonant totems of Burrough's life.
