"The empty seats are always
 next to me, 
a vacancy on either side
Andrea Stuckey

Pictures of empty seats are just one way to represent vacancy, something you’re missing or waiting for to fill the void. Sometimes seats can also represent something, or someone missing from your life so now the seat is empty, reminding you of your loss. 

But there is a myriad of ways to represent these emotions. We would like to see your pictures symbolizing a loss or vacancy. Not just empty seats, of course, but whatever it is for you that expresses a deficit, a bereavement, a desire or an emptiness in your life.
