When Re-Ment becomes an obsession/addiction.




the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.




the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc.

I have often wondered if I am addicted to or obsessed with Re-Ment.  There is just something about those little reproductions of daily items…dishes, food, perfume bottles…ahhhh the list could go on forever.  I am not quite sure what it is but as a photographer, I love these little items because they can help fill out a scene and make a photo infinitely more interesting.  There is also the fact that they are just plain fun to stage and play with.  Like many collectors, I started off with just a few sets I had found at a local Japanese market.  Then…because those first few sets were so fun…I had to have more.

I used to just store the sets in a big box but then it became so difficult to find what I wanted, I was not using them at all.  I found these hardware organizers that work very well for these small sets.  The added bonus was that they could be hung on the wall next to my little studio space.  This way I can just grab what I need.
