‘Potholes’ is a photography series by David Luciano and Claudia Ficca that has been ongoing since 1997. Both are married, both are photographers however this project seems to be something outside their normal remit, a project borne of something else, something more personal. Here’s what they have to say about the project:
We were cruising through Outremont in our 1997 Jetta and we hit a big pothole. Six hundred dollars in car repair later, we came up with the idea of using potholes as the main theme in a photography project. We started imagining different scenes that take place in a pothole. For our first scene we thought: “wouldn’t it be funny if we saw a woman washing clothes in a pothole?” so filled up our car with gallons of water, soap, laundry and a clothes rack, drove around in search of a nice pothole, unloaded the car and shot the “Laundry” scene. We then began scouting potholes and developing ideas for upcoming shots and through a series of guerrilla street-level photo shoots, turned craters all over Montreal, Los Angeles and New York into objects of fancy.
If they came to Ireland they’d have a million holes to deal with.
