Wobbly Legs _ Winner of Weird & Wonderful category, Time Out's photography exhibition

Eva BachmannComment

I am delighted about my image 'Wobbly Legs' being chosen by Martin Parr as a winner of the 'Weird & Wonderful' category in Time Out's photographic competition. It was launched in connection with the 'Strange & Familiar - Britain as Revealed by International Photographers' exhibition at the Barbican. 

I came across 'Wobbly Legs', a surreal looking bench, next to a busy road on Morning Lane, Hackney. The rickety street furniture reminded me of someone after a night out, unsteady on their legs, twisting and shifting to try to keep their balance.
With my work I aim to alter our view of the ordinary by exemplifying its creative essence, adding a new visual experience, shifting our awareness, so that we notice what often goes unnoticed.
