“Every photo has a different story,” said John Thackwray, the mastermind behind the “My Room Project” that features people’s cultures and lifestyles through photographs of bedrooms. The photo series shows a glimpse of the cultural diversity; capturing the so-called connected generation’s (a.k.a. millennials) private spaces, their bedrooms.
