Public Telephones Photographed Around the World

Louis PorterGeorgia, USA

Australian-based photographer Louis Porter captures obscure objects that often go unnoticed, turning the mundane into something more. He does this in Telephone Booths, a series observing public phones and their variation between countries. Porter plays with the constant of the telephone – an object exhibiting the same purpose and function anywhere – yet when captured in vastly different environments around the world, we are reminded of the components of a connected society.
