Holy Potholes

Thursday, 1 March 2012 0 comments
Potholes is a series of photographs depicting the concave street cracks and holes as a collection of imaginative tableaux in the city. Captured within the backdrops of Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, and New York City, the sets explore the urban flaws as a playground creating a multitude of uses out of the potholes. Directly engaging the street, the city, the highly imaginative series transforms the bad into good, creating a tongue-in-cheek collection that is at once contextual and surreal.
How it Started: “We were cruising through Outremont in our 1997 Jetta and we hit a big pothole. Six hundred dollars in car repair later, we came up with the idea of using potholes as the main theme in a photography project. We started imagining different scenes that take place in a pothole.  We then began scouting potholes and developing ideas for upcoming shots and through a series of guerrilla street-level photo shoots, turned craters into objects of fancy.” (Claudia Ficca + Davide Luciano)
