Shelves+Street Photography

I was shocked at our combination. Our team (Ryan Weatherbee and Jackson Hootman) attempted to figure out a way to combine this object and aesthetic. Street photography was characterized by striking contrast and the concept of “urban”. Urban brought strong visuals of graffiti to me which I tried to incorporate in my image.  We first thought of shelving that had been made of lampposts and then moved on to the idea of a brick wall. One of the group members brought the bricks out from the wall to make a floating shelf but I decided to go the other way and remove bricks to make a little cubby for hidden treasures. I chose to place a lock and key in the hidden space because of some strong imagery I remember of locks on city bridges.
