The Chair. A continuing series......

Two or three years ago some neighbours were throwing away a dining chair. It had been left outside the front their property, something I'd noticed they often do with unwanted household items. I really liked the high back look of the chair so I picked it up and took it home with photography in mind. I soon discovered the reason why the chair was up for grabs. The seat supports had broken so it couldn't really take any weight. This is something which doesn't really phase me. Within a few hours I had removed the covering, cut a new piece of wood for the seat and reassembled the chair to nearly good as new.

So the chair lives in my studio where stuff gets dumped on it and it mostly gets ignored. Sometimes though it does get called into use. Really it's use started soon after I got it when I did some self portraits on the chair. It has had occasional use since and last weekend was its latest outing. When friends Ondrej and Elizabeth came round to do a shoot it seemed the perfect excuse to use the chair again. Elizabeths height and accompanying long legs worked brilliantly with the tall slender shape of the chair. The black covering matched her leather jacket and dark hair. Everything came together to create some good strong photographs.
