Local Johns Vol. 1

One of the projects that have currently been on the top of my list is this one of toilets. It started from an idea of making prints of toilets to have hanging in a bathroom. Originally I wanted to photograph grungy bathroom, but when I got into it I quickly moved to the idea of toilets of notable locations when I got to the Oakland Museum of California. This first installment of photos is kind of a mix between grungy and notable johns of Oakland, Ca.

    This is such a great idea for a project & the black & white processing is spot on. Don’t you get some quizzical looks though, hanging around in a public bathroom with a camera? 🙂

    • Hey, thank you. Most of the time the bathrooms were empty but I stopped taking photos as soon as I heard anyone coming it. In a silent bathroom camera shutters are surprisingly loud. Thanks for looking.
