♥  All pieces photographed EXACTLY AS FOUND ON THE STREET.

♥  That’s important to me because I think it says something about the relationship between the furniture and the people who put it there. (For instance, they almost always face the street and very rarely are they covered in any kind of garbage. There’s a strange kind of love happening there.)

♥  There are 49 photos in the exhibition. Here’s but a sample…
