the photo that started it all

 

bathroom setups started in 2012, when i wandered into the bathroom of a small greek restaurant near my college campus. the only decor in the room was a broken picture frame, propped up in the corner, staring at you on the toilet, as if to announce that it was still relevant despite it's current physical pitfalls.

ever since that experience, i began noticing setups in almost every public bathroom i visited. i'm continually fascinated how people attempt "beautify" the place where we take care of our unwanted bodily excrements. the setups are often predictable, varying with the intensity of kitsch of the initial environment. but often, sometimes the least assuming places have hosted my favorite setups.

in 2015, i started an instagram to showcase my findings and welcomed the submissions from people all over the world. there's also a zine, which can be purchased in my online shop.
