Edmonton Disrobed

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

QUESTIONS ASKED VERY FREQUENTLYOkay, I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath for the Edmonton Disrobed official FAQ. So here it is.Who are you?I’m afraid I can’t tell you that.Who is CT?I’m afraid he can’t tell you that.How did you come up with this idea?It came to me in a dream, obviously. Also, I greatly enjoy the sculpture Venus of the Rags (Venere degli stracci) (hint: that nude gal with the mountain of laundry up there) by Michelangelo Pistoletto, mainly because I am pretty much a goddess of love and beauty myself, and also I evidently find myself surrounded by a shitload of discarded clothing everywhere I go in Edmonton. This sculpture is basically representative of my life, you see.Are the stories real?Of course. This is investigative journalism, after all.Are the scenes ever staged?No. Actually touching the clothes would be yucky. I submited a photo. WHere is it?!?!???Settle down, sonny. It gets added to the queue.How often do you update?If there is something to post, the blog will update at 5 p.m. MST by itself every day. Tiny laundry fairies are in charge of that.Do you have an artistic manifesto?It’s in the works.Can we be friends?Yes! I highly recommend saying hello to anybody taking photographs in back alleys and parking lots.
