Outhouses of the World 2013
We grapple with vital human needs every day. They inspire great paintings, extraordinary books, symphonies and cathedrals. Outhouses of the World pictures privies that cross every culture and at special moments are as important as any book or cathedral . . . though a few pages of that book could also prove useful.
14 x 22 inches, open
"I have driven many dirt roads seeking scenic landscapes, and in the process found out-of-the-way outhouses all over the western states. It dawned on me that these little lean-tos told the true history of the area and once they vanished, so would an era reminiscent of the simpler ways of life.
"I have hiked, biked, skied, snowshoed, and ridden horseback to capture these extraordinary, humorous, and historic outbuildings. On my photographic journeys abroad I've continued my outlandish search for these decrepit one, two, or three holers. While tromping grizzly territory in Alaska; backpacking the Haleakala Crater in Hawaii, the fjords of New Zealand, and the jungles of Argentina; and exploring the base of a Chilean volcano, I have found that there is never an outhouse too remote to photograph!"
