Tagged : ‘The Loo Series’
As many of my obsessions seem to take a photographic swing, I’ ve got a new, somewhat morbid one. I’m calling it The Loo Series.
Contrary to common perception, I’ve seldom had any trouble travelling (alone). But you see, being a woman with a high metabolic rate doesn’t really make things easy. I’m often discreetly asking local women, sometimes in sign language, for directions to a loo. Often, the loo is behind a well endowed bush by the road.
Although many a time, people wrinkle their noses or laugh as I narrate my Loo stories, I can only but empathise with the millions of women who live with the lack of sanitary facilities around the world. I find it a curious representation of the economies of the world and it’s regard for it’s female population. However, as I continue my travel, I also begin my documentation.
