Unless you're talking about a furniture catalog, most people wouldn't be interested in chair photos. Bert Loeschner has taken it upon himself to change that opinion with his inventive, disfigured chair photo series.

Even if chairs aren't in regular rotation, most homes have at least a few plastic patio chairs. The design is classic and easily recognizable and that is what makes this photo series so good. Bert twists and reworks the legs and arms of the chairs to give them human-like qualities.

In one photo we see a lawn chair hitchhiking, in another we see a chair holding on to a swing and using a swing set. More than the reconfiguration of the chairs is the situations they are placed in that makes this series special.
