ARTIST STATEMENT for Dónde Está El Baño


As one who was born and raised in Texas and has a weakness for the taste of Mexican food, there's no telling how many of these restaurants my need for comfort food has decided to take me to.


Dónde Está El Baño is a collection of images captured to celebrate the explosion of colors and diversity of styles that greets one upon arrival into the men's restroom at Mexican restaurants across the country.


Images were captured in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, Tennessee, and Texas.


Capturing the first impression upon entering into the private sanctuary of El Baño never fails to surprise.


Many times, the visual assault on the eyes is as spicy as the welcomed incursion of the jalapeños on the taste buds.


And, God knows, I love it!
