The chair project
Have you ever noticed the chairs that security guards sit on?
They are our “first line of defence”, in charge of public places.
Their job is to scare people off, ward off an attack, guard the palace.
But when they rest their feet, they do so on chairs with stuffing oozing out, or three-legged chairs stabilised with an old paint tin.
I want to take pictures of these people on their chairs and tell a short story of their life and how they found the chair and how they feel about it.
Through this I hope to tell the observer who is interested a small story of humanity and survival. Who knows, one day I might even buy the camera to do it with.
