Photographer Makes Fun of Outrageous San Francisco Rent Prices

Can you afford to live in San Francisco? Unless you can live in a mailbox, you might have a hard time finding an affordable apartment. Scot Hampton, a photographer who lives in that fair city, created a series of images that satirizes the high rent prices that residents endure. He placed For Rent signs on dumpsters, mailboxes, and manholes along with captions designed to entice prospective tenants. For example, the above image came with this pitch:

Waterfront Condo - $5000

Waterfront condo in the highly desirable, up-and-coming mid-Market area. Luxurious living at its finest! Enjoy the sounds and smells of the UN Plaza fountain as you relax in your condo after a hard day of complaining about the homeless. Close to public transportation, Civic Center Farmers Market, @Twitter, the @Tenderloin and several aggressive seagulls. 33 SQ. FT. Utilities not included, nor available.

All of which is technically accurate!
