These images were taken across the city; from hostel stairwells to gallery entrance halls, each image documents a different narrative. Although the purpose of each staircase remains functional, each individual design gives an insight into the time & location of its creation. Some of the steps will have been climbed by thousand & thousand of people, on their daily commute or to view a new exhibition, but by removing the human presence in each image, the staircases stand as a purely inanimate, sculptural form.
I have created an insatrgam account @ihavethisthingforstairs, on which I will continue to document this photographic series, with the hope of creating a alternative record of my travels.
