“Closed” Waters

The idea for this project comes from a journey to India in 2004. Being attracted by details of cities and interiors, the impulse to take photographs of public toilets arose from the desire to portray something new, a subject so common and ‘dirty’ that nobody has never dealt with.

From the very beginning this project has the ambitious intent to compare images coming from different parts of the world that highlight the similarity and diversity of the space and of this object.

A rhythmic presentation of an image of everyday life that everyone of us sees at last once a day, it is often one of the first things we see.

Here the concept of public space is also seen according to an individual perspective and not only as a dimension opened to everyone. It is a space for personal needs but also a moment of privacy. The toilet that becomes a place where writings and spots express things that are usually unexpressed.
