Picture of the Week, June 12, 2014

Oh! we liked Queer Bathroom Stories, now wrapping its run at Buddies in Bad Times in Toronto. One of the reasons we liked it so much is that the aesthetics of it were pure, simple and gave weight to the tales on stage and it is that essence that photographer Dahlia Katz has captured in this photo of Tyson James and Hallie Burt. The colour, the heat and the humanity of the production are all clear in Ms Katz's work. What is notable is that although the characters are visible - what we normally see of people in an adjacent stall in a public bathroom - the feet - are what we see here. The picture itself is like the play: an instant telling a complete narrative - one of dozens.
