Brooklyn-based photographer Justin Bettman has taken trash and made it charming.

In an ongoing art project called #setinthestreet Bettman, and occasionally Gozde Eker, creates elaborately quirky home sets from unwanted furniture that beams with Wes Andersonesque charm. These sets are built in random locations around New York, and locations can be tracked on a map on the project’s website. They’ve even created one of these charming sets in California.

Taking a cue from French director Michel Gondry’s Home Movie Factory exhibitions a number of years ago, Bettman leaves the sets on the streets after the shoot so passersby to shoot their own photos, and then upload them to Instagram with the hashtag #setinthestreet

Check out some of the shots people have created, and some behind the scenes photos on the project’s Instagram page.
