In your bag 861, Pete Duval
Inside a writers bag no less. Today Pete shares his bag, and a battered copy of one of my personal favourite books. Check it out.

Hello. My name is Pete Duval. I’m a fiction writer, teacher, occasional (and somewhat reluctant) seeker after the truth; and I live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For some time now, in both my photography and my writing, I’ve been trying to, as Conrad puts it, “render the highest kind of justice to the visible universe, by bringing to light the truth, manifold and one, underlying its every aspect.”

Here is my bag.

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.
