Lavatory Self Portraits in the Flemish Style: Give Her a Nobel Prize

Or whatever prize they give for inspired masterpieces. I was tickled to get mention at the Blog of Funny Names today for my news tip about this lady!

“While in the lavatory on a domestic flight in March 2010, I spontaneously put a tissue paper toilet cover seat cover over my head and took a picture in the mirror using my cellphone. 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. I was wearing a thin black scarf that I sometimes hung up on the wall behind me to create the deep black ground that is typical of these portraits.”

Check out the incredible photos at the link.
