What is that precious object you have had a long time? Perhaps it has some special meaning because of how you got it or who gave it to you. Or maybe something that only has meaning today. A family heirloom? A toy you’ve had since you were four years old? Something your child gave you on your birthday? Cleveland photographer Charles J. Mintz posed this question to 172 individuals from throughout the United States, took their photograph with the item and asked each to hand write 2-3 sentences about their choice.
The exhibition closes Sunday, September 30, 2012.

Production of Precious Objects was made possible by a generous gift from Spero-Smith Advisors in celebration of the 40th anniversary.
