Porcelain Palace

Porcelain Palace
My photography course required me to do a project titled “Public”. My original idea for this project was to bring a camera into public restrooms and take pictures there. More than a bit riske… I took several, two with models both of which I am debating putting onto PIczar Photo.

This picture was taken early this morning. I caught sight of this toilet the night before and as if it were a sign from above, I knew I had to use this picture. Never have I seen a more public toilet, in the middle of a courtyard. Definitely takes a private object to a new place.

As with the others pictures taken that morning, I used my remote flash to light the inside and outside of the toilet, two exposures blended together.

I know how I feel about this picture but I’d love to learn what it means to you.
