So what is it about chairs?

Self portrait with chair, Paris.

After three years, I'm still trying to figure it out. Chairs are defined by their functionality, but this functionality is only defined by the presence of people. Empty chairs imply the absence of people. It is in this absence that I can see the chair.

Recently I have become fascinated by the space around the chair, the void, the negative, and how that defines what I see. What is not there is still felt by what is, and so the chairs remain.
