The “Potholes” photo series by Canadian art duo Claudia Ficca and Davide Luciano reimagines the infamous urban road terrors as benign and humorous–instead of destroying shock absorbers, the potholes are host to baptisms, steaming piles of spaghetti, and Santa’s milk and cookies. Prints of the photos are available for purchase on their website.
After a sudden collision with a canyon sized crater of a pothole we decided to channel our frustration into a positive project where the useless pothole would be a source of humor and creativity.
Our imaginative and diverse application for potholes led us on a relentless quest in search of the perfect pothole. On site we set up our props as required to build the set we desire. The entire shoot takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
