Street Furniture

I’m not exactly sure when I became obsessed by taking photos of the furniture people left out on the street but it’s become a habit. Wherever I go I’m on the look-out for street furniture. This isn’t to report it to the council or complain – I just find the juxtaposition of indoor stuff, especially sofas, sitting outside oddly alluring.

There are places in North London where I live where it looks like there’s more furniture  outside people’s house than inside. There’s definitely more street furniture around now than when I started recording it – a sign of our collapsing public space maybe. This is the first of a series.
