A person’s pillow is their most intimate object. For the “Objects of Intimacy” project Damien Rudd photographed five old, soiled pillows from five different people. Each pillow was photographed in the same manner a forensic scientist may examine criminal evidence. The hidden and discreet is now open for public close study. When an individual’s pillow is relieved publicly, it causes a sensation of embarrassment and shame.
