Portraits of People Next to Things They Are Proud Of...

The previous post featured photographs of people standing next to fake cakes that they were particularly proud of. I've been thinking a lot about this tradition in portraiture and have accumulated some images below of people and their objects (though some were once living therefore "object" is a slight misnomer).
