We Were Shocked by These Insightful Images of Women In Their Bedrooms

How much does your bedroom actually say about you? Italian photographers Gabriele Galimberti and Edoardo Dilelle believed they could capture intimate insights into women’s lives by photographing them in their personal living spaces. This collaborative effort presents a number of young women from different countries and social standings.

The project states: “In a world that is increasingly shaped by global standardization and IKEA aesthetics, this work explores the rooms of the conventional and the eccentric, the rich and the poor, the mother and the single, the pious and the unbelieving, the sports-obsessed and the shopping-addicted, the tomboy and the girly-girl, the tidy and the shambolic… These bedrooms are the mirrors of the history, personality, culture, obsessions and social status of the girls that occupy them, but are also unique windows into these young women’s worlds.”

The portraits run the spectrum from the wealthy elite, with fashionable furniture and accessories, to others who are clearly not as fortunate. They’re all amazing for the glimpse they give us into each unique personality and circumstance.
