Shot street-style, exactly as found, with whatever iPhone of the time, the images document what the streets' are wearing. As you can see, they only get hand-me-downs. Mostly from our feet.
Unlike gloves however, that only trend seasonally, abandoned shoes are part of their permanent collection. There's nothing underground about the sartorial choices on it.
We can also collectively agree they're not going anywhere either. So don’t give them away. Oh wait - you already did. That’s what we do for the shiny & new. Without paying, these still-life's remain an homage to what’s not;
What we do see stands to matter.
Like Forrest Gump's mama always said; "You can tell a lot about a person by their shoes, where they going, where they been..."
I think you can tell just as much about a person with abandoned shoes.
That's the story I've found myself telling. What's yours?
As much yours as mine, I welcome & invite your 'finds' anytime. A collection can never have too many statement pieces.
