Loo Series by joel Sampson

This series started with a couple of snapshot self-portraits in a public "loo" and evolved. Several images have been included in prestigious group shows. I look for unusual, elegant, funky or famous loos. Occasionally they also become a group portrait!

Now that everyone (except for me) carries a cell phone with an internal camera, selfies are so common and I have stopped doing the series.

I shot this series with a variety of compact Sony Point & Shoot cameras. I started with a Sony T-9, Sony T-100 and a Sony W300 digital camera. The images are printed using an Epson printer with archival pigmented ink on watercolor paper.
