Photographers often take an everyday object, and by making it the subject of their photo, make us look at it in a different way. An object like an empty chair blends into the landscape of daily life, but at the center of a photo, we stop to take a closer look. The structure of a chair serves as much of a decorative purpose as it does a functional purpose, beyond just being a place to sit, each chair design has a style and personality all its own. Whether it’s plastic chairs in front of a shop for the elderly to observe the passing crowds, or a baroque style dining chair for a lavish dinner party, chairs are independent works of art for different people, places, and times.
This gallery features a collection of photos taken from our community, all of them focusing on chairs as their subjects. Share your own photos of chairs by tagging them #chairs
