Photographer Danny Treacy recovers discarded clothing he finds lying around in lonely places such as streets, car parks and waste ground. He then re-stitches, re-fashioned: re-modeled into junk monsters – uncanny suits that he wears in life-sized portraits in his series Them.

They belonged to the unknown, the anonymous, the lost, the drunken and looming out of the black background the faceless figures evoke urban warriors, mythical beasts, distorted creatures. It seem that something that happened to its former owner emanates from each piece of fabric, making the attire all the more haunting.
