The Green Chair Project

I've been sitting on a collection of photographs that I took with my friend Mose Andre in the summer of 2002. The project was simple in premise: acquire an object from a thrift store and see how many different people we could photograph interacting with it. This evolved into a three day project of hauling a crappy green chair around the beautiful city of Spokane Washington, the results were well over a hundred portraits that reveal an unbiased sample of culture from the heart of the Inland Empire; we are no more than the sum of our parts.
