ON THE bench

My daily walks

in the city continue

The empty benches dotted across the city appear almost in conversation with one another. Mundane mise-en-scènes appear off-beat, like abandoned stage sets amongst old and shiny buildings, looking like they belong to a play that has been interrupted mid-sentence. Bird song is a constant chirpy backdrop. I decide to start photographing empty benches, documenting the surreal absence of people; the atypical scenes staged since the appearance of the virus.
