The latest “Objects laid out in photos” blog comes from New-York-based Foster Huntington, a man obsessed with “clothes, photography and American lifestyles.” Huntington’s Burning House blog asks creatives around the world, “If your house was burning, what would you take with you?”

Anderson brings a Nikon and a hunting rifle, enabling him to shoot both the disaster and looters.
