I have become a bathroom traveler. As a mother of two young children, I’m keenly aware of all emergency exits and, more importantly, all available restrooms. In a world where function and form collide, the bathroom is seldom explored with an artistic eye.
These images show my travels to the Oregon State Library, Capitol building, Riverfront Carousel, Reed Opera House, Capitol Mall, Riverfront Park, Clockworks Café, Bush’s Pasture Park, Cherriots bus station, Minto-Brown Island Park and the Salem Public Library. Can you recognize them?
