this is another outtake from my book and I’m not sure why i chose to exclude it, because this is one of those photos that stand out to me in my collection of recent work.
it’s rare that i find props in the streets and actually utilize them with a model. this legless chair was found when my model/photographer friend and i were wandering around shooting together in one of the most colorful boroughs of Detroit, Hamtramck, in the back alleys of peoples houses where they put their trash to be picked up.
i like wandering in the alleys of that area, simply because i always find some of the most peculiar things being thrown out. typically i just take photos of the piece of trash itself, and like i said, i never really have a model work with anything i find, but this chair was too perfect.
