Part of the Bench Life Project. See Bench Life Album for more. The bench was the common seating form in the days when chairs were reserved for the most important people (hence the term “chairman”). Early types were very simple, consisting of a plank supported by solid ends connected by brackets or a stretcher. Finding an empty bench. In a park we often go in search of an empty bench . Its desirable providing an opportunity to idle, while away some time and watch the world go by. Maybe have a picnic and rest those legs. The interest for me isn't the urban furniture itself though they can come in all shapes and sizes and different colours and be modern or aged. No for me as a photographer it is the body language that is exhibited. For some the bench once they sit down it becomes their personnel space , their personnel kingdom and they won't welcome others to join them on a public bench. For others a bench is the opposite a chance for company, to meet and talk with strangers about the weather , about politics and sport. Does it vary around the world this public etiquette of sitting on public benches with strangers? In Bury St Edmunds my home town there is a plaque on a bench in the Abbey Gardens which records the fact that we have the worlds first internet bench. Obviously short lived . Abbey Gardens Bury St Edmunds How technology changes! in 2001 this bench became the worlds first internet bench.

Users simply plug their laptop into the modem sockets concealed in the inside arms of the bench, power up, and go online. "People might be surprised that we've located a 21st Century cyber seat in the grounds of an 11th Century abbey. "But Bury St Edmunds is proud to be the only town in the world that can offer this unique opportunity to use the web outdoors. "Office workers can use it to stay connected, local people can do their shopping online while the kids play in the park, and the thousands of tourists who visit during the summer can instantly beam pictures of our award-winning gardens back to loved ones anywhere in the world." One photographer spent 10 years photographing the same bench. Yevhen Kotenko in the Ukraine made a good project capturing the different people who used this bench. Josh Ridge, a Melbourne-based photographer has an Instagram account dedicated to capturing the beauty of benches. My own project is merely to capture people on benches wherever I am and I am with a camera..
