Next To You

John Ferri


Next To You is a long-term study of a single city bench. The series is the result of hundreds of images taken over a two-year period from the same vantage point. Seen together, the photographs form a kind of linear community in a continuous space, creating unforeseen connections and an intimacy among strangers. Ultimately, these photos reveal the patterns by which people use public space to both congregate and insulate.
