"I make photographs all the time.  For me photography is a lifestyle.  When I am on the road I always have my camera, and like all travelers, I am careful with my equipment.  I usually have to go to the bathroom, and taking my camera with me is a safety precaution.  I have found that bathrooms, at least women's bathrooms, are very lively, sometimes vibrant places, and are among the most interesting spaces I have visited in my far-flung travels.  I am happy to say that multi-tasking comes naturally, and that cultural investigation is ubiquitious, thus this ongoing series of images.  Basically, if you are an image-maker you are always discovering pictures where ever you find yourself"
