LADIES ROOMS AROUND THE WORLD

As i grew up, bathrooms were my favorite hiding place and the one sanctuary of solitude. In 1978, to escape a boring awards dinner in a hotel ballroom, i retreated to the ladies room. Enchanted by the octogenarians adjusting their corsets and false eyelashes, i photographed the camaraderie of their tribal dance. Thus began my journey photographing in ladies rooms around the world ‐ from Australia to Zambia, Bombay to Bosnia, Rio to Tel Aviv.
