Lavatory Self-Portraits by Nina Katchadourian

For her project titled "Seat Assignment", artist Nina Katchadourian created a series of Flemish-inspired digital images using only a camera phone and materials on hand. Nina explains, "While in the lavatory on a domestic flight, I spontaneously put a tissue paper toilet seat cover over my head and took a picture in the mirror. The image evoked 15th-century Flemish portraiture. I made several forays to the bathroom from my aisle seat, and by the time we landed I had a large group of new photographs entitled Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style."
