Incredibly Elaborate Sets Made From Discarded Furniture Created On NYC's Streets

For the past six months, photographer Justin Bettman and stylist Gozde Eker have been constructing incredibly elaborate sets on the sidewalks of New York City from discarded objects and furniture.

Their fun project features them cobbling together amazing sets made to look like home interiors, which they document on their website.

“My goal is to create images that when looking at them cropped in, you would have no idea that these were shot on the street,” Bettman told PetaPixel.

After building and photographing a set, the duo leave it on the sidewalk with a note encouraging members of the public to take their own pictures and upload them to Instagram with the hashtag ‘#setinthestreet’.

Check out some of the sets they have built so far and follow the project here.

Walked Down The Street From Artichoke Bastille's Pizza & Brewery and there was this beautiful and random piece of art. Go check it out. It'll be there until November 22nd, 2014. It'll make you smile. Promiseee. 😙 #setinthestreet
