Edmonton Disrobed

Photographs of garments that the people of Edmonton have curiously discarded in public.

Walk of shame… or STRUT OF TRIUMPH?
(114 Street and 104 Avenue)
Remnants of Saturday night’s no pants party on the LRT.

He must have vaporized.
(104 Street and 78 Avenue)
A pair of boots perched atop a garbage can in Churchill Square. I guess that’s a good place to leave them while you’re bathing in the city hall fountains?
In other news, today marks the first anniversary of Edmonton Disrobed! A whole magical year of discarded clothing. Thank you for reading and for leaving your clothes everywhere for me to document. I like you all very much.
This is Sally. She was such a sweetheart. We talked for hours. (98 Avenue and 101A Street)
This is a light zippered jacket (I think? You don’t want to get too close to things in the Quarters/the ghetto. They might jump out at you and stab you) found on 96 Street and 102 Avenue. I ventured east of 97 Street! I am so proud of myself. This cappuccino-sipping apartment dweller is gaining some serious street cred. The experience of keeping it real was pretty eye-opening and inspiring, so I headed to the Mac afterwards for a glass of pinot grigio on the terrace to celebrate.
Born to be a Canucks fan; murdered for not being an Oilers fan. This poor soul’s hat is all that was left behind. In the immortal words of Cadence Weapon: it’s corrupt where I’m from, Edmonton, tough! / City life will leave you red with blood 

(Jasper Avenue and 101 Street)
A pair of patriotic mittens spotted outside the Shaw Conference Centre on the art (?) in +23 sunshine. Or is this part of a new art installation? Maybe I am just not up on the street art happeningz these days. You know what Edmonton needs more of in the way of public art? GARGOYLES. Does anyone remember watching that show when they were little? Goliath was pretty sexy, you have to admit.


You lost your pants sometime in the winter on Jasper Ave and 110 Street, but I forgot to post this until now, so it looks like you’re shit out of luck in finding them again. I’m sorry.



To make up for their not always timely service, ETS is furnishing its bus shelters with new amenities and features. They now come fully stocked with everything you could possibly need while waiting for a bus, including jeans, a Reader’s Digest containing inspiring love stories, cigarettes, and so much more.
