This quite remarkable image was taken in Nanning city, (in the south China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region). One owner of an apartment in China has strange ideas about ‚small living’ and doing something about it. He built a corridor connecting two buildings in a residential district, to enlarge his property.
The streets of New York City, well known from visit visits, various movies and TV shows, are lined with loads of a abandoned, discarded domestic stuff. Think used furniture, books, plants, toys and tiles. Photographer Justin Bettman and Brooklyn-based prop stylist Gozde Eker have been inspired by these seemingly random objects and used them to create poetic, fun scenes, crafted entirely from unwanted materials they found abandoned on the sidewalks. Bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms are built with wallpaper, tables, posters and assorted props, each which seek to tell the story of the family, couple or single inhabitants that are meant to reside in the spaces.
