Rethinking Potholes

Woven into the fabric of urban life are the sometimes-dangerous blemishes we call potholes. These tire-popping, boot-wetting nuisances are generally afterthoughts, things to complain about when they ruin our day. But a duo of Canadian photographers took it upon themselves to re-imagine our relationship with this urban menace. By casting the humble pothole as a beer cooler, trout pond, wash basin, and more, Claudia Ficca and Davide Luciano help us be both more aware of the problem, and less concerned about its persistence.
