Today I’m booting up my latest project, with the firm intention to get it rolling for a while. It’s called “MadeInAnywhere” and as you imagine, it has something to do with Photography.

The idea is to take everyday life objects, picture their label “Made In …” and make a diptych out of the combination “provenance + object”. Every object would have its own post and contributions are welcome (a Flickr group is being setup for this)

It all comes up with one of my favorite expression. Every once in a while in cafeteria discussion someone says “Oh, this was Made In China” to which I invariably reply “Come on, the whole planet was Made In China“. But does it? How much of any object you can think traveled around the world to reach you? Our first item below comes from Japan!

Mug, Made in Japan

We’ll see this and a lot more on
