Toilet Seats. Toilet seats in Texas. A Toilet Seat Art Museum in San Antonio. Barney Smithâ€™s Toilet Seat Art Museum. Count me in!
One of the things I love about what I do is getting access to a place or a person that I didnâ€™t know even existed before they contacted me. Â A big part of what keeps me going is the love of an adventure and to have â€“ and share – these experiences with people and their stories.
Ketchum contacted me in regards to working a project for Clorox. Working with creative director, Ken Buraker, we headed to San Antonio and Barneyâ€™s museum. In addition to creating a series of images of Barney, we set up an outdoor available-light studio in the 100 degree Texas heat and photographed the objects that inspired us – Clean, minimalistic and graphically interesting.
I loved this so much. Itâ€™s bananas!! Â
What do you do after toilet seats? Whatâ€™s next? Honestly, I want to go where I donâ€™t know I want to go yet.
*If you are in San Antonio, Barneyâ€™s Toilet Seat Museum should really be on your must visit list. Â Barney himself is an American treasure. And he has a ton of stories to tell. The museum is located in his garage, so itâ€™s small but there itâ€™s overflowing with stuff to see.
