Urban Sofas

Christine Donnier started photographing abandoned sofas a few years ago. The sofa is an object of comfort in a home, filled with memories of conversations, laughter, tears, play, books, food. And then it is discarded, taken outside and left next to the bins. She's interested in the way they occupy the street spatially, face-down or lying sideways. Often the aesthetic style of the sofa matches the architecture it used to be housed in. Somehow they bring a certain calm to the chaos of the urban environment.
