I had recently set up a rule for my photo work: not to interfere too much - let the pictures choose themselves. I noticed if I was quick on the trigger, chose the camera function and
immediately pulled the trigger, I saw the most unaffected shooting area and motifs stuck on the image.
As a tourist in Shanghai, I was fascinated by the city under the elevated freeway, life on the street, on the sidewalk under the trees that concealed the more than thirty storey houses. Strolling with a mobile - camera in my hand, shooting photos from the hip, images I saw in the corner of my eye.
Afterwords when looking through the pictures I found improbable motives, almost no people, but beautiful geometries, surfaces, coatings, stools and chairs. Stories, traces of life (Shanghai).
In six days, at least 272 chairs – all individual histories.
