Empty Apartments

[ view the project here ]

Empty Apartments is an online project consisting of approximately 125,000 photographs of apartments that were listed for rent on Craigslist on May 20, 2016. They were automatically scraped these images from the site, then manually sorted to remove exterior shots, ads, floorplans, and shared areas like gyms and foyers. The images are shown en masse, appearing as an endlessly scrolling field that reveals the transitional, intimate spaces where American renters carry out their private lives.
