Airplane Bathroom Portraits “In The Flemish Style” Are Fantastic

We’re late on this but it is delightful. Wonderfully inventive goofball Nina Katchadourian slips into airplane restrooms and adorns herself with all manner of available accessories–namely paper towels and inflatable neck-supporting pillows–to create portraits of herself “in the Flemish style.” All the photos are taken in-flight using a camera phone and lit only by the stall’s shitty overhead lights. The results are so much greater than the sum of their parts. See:

We feel a little sorry for anyone waiting for the bathroom while Katchadourian readies herself, but these are so great we don’t really care. Visit her blog to read a little more from her and see many more portraits.
