The porn industry is a thriving one and although the story lines are often very familiar, it appears through the recent work of Jo Broughton, a photographer based in the United Kingdom, that the spaces they're filled in are endlessly creative. Dubbed Empty Porn Sets, the photo series looks innocent enough until you notice the dildo on the wardrobe in one still, the panties on the floor in another and a bottle of lube carefully tucked away almost out of sight.

Jo Broughton was inspired by her own interesting story when deciding to create this series. A younger Jo Broughton had applied to be a photographer's assistant and ended up working at a porn studio. She shares, "At times I struggled with what went on in the space, about the objectification of women...I hid my association with the porn industry like a guilty secret but without it I may not have been able to realise my ambitions."
