Photographer Creates Elaborate Stage Sets on NYC Sidewalks Using Discarded Furniture

"Set in the Streets" is an ongoing art project by photographer Justin Bettman in which he collaborated with stylist Gozde Eker, in building elaborate sets out of unwanted household items and furniture found on the street in New York City. After shooting the photos, the sets are left up on the sidewalk, where passersby can shoot their own photos. “We pay so much money for rent, but there’s so much available to us for free,” Bettman told New York Magazine. He and Eker insist they’re not littering but rather “curating furniture that has been disposed of and putting it all in one area for the community to see.”
