Everybody answers nature’s call, right? It’s something we all have in common. Artist Cristina Guggeri set out to humanize some of our worlds most famous leaders by showing what they might, and probably do look like using the bathroom. The Italy based artist said, “we do our daily duties in the same way, we sit on our ‘throne’ in silence, only with ourselves.” This is her way of putting us all on the same level. This series is called ll Dovere Quotidiano, or “The Daily Duty“. See what she did there? I think the only thing missing is a cell phone or magazine in their hands. I mean they are leaders, they probably multitask. More importantly these photos of world leaders doing their “duty” prove that they are people too.
