And Pray That All of Our Pain Be Champagne

#85 Going to Market

And Pray That All of Our Pain Be champage is a collection of images from ebay listings for 'luxury' items edited by photographer Peter Mann. Seen in this way, without the guile of the worlds top fashion and advertising photographers these objects take on a different life. Sometimes funny, often absurd and strangely touching this series of pictures shows a more down to earth side of our relationship with the lifestyle of luxury and aspiring to own objects that give us the feeling of wealth. The images were collected between 2011 and 2012 during the height of the current economic crisis.
