bathroom design pictures
As these impressive images via DPS illustrate, bathrooms both large and small can be beautiful places – but these photos also show that there is a big difference between a well-composed and colorful scene and a livable real-life space design. Following up on a stunning collection of bathroom designs, here is a look at how photographic representation can enhance but also skew the way we look at one of the most conventional and banal interior spaces.

The above three images are both impressive, but by shooting on an angle and in more varied light the photographer who took the top photograph manages to convey a darker mood and more modern setting. The second shot shown above is taken straight-on in balanced lighting and represents the space well but emphasizes linearity, order, predictability and stability of a typical home bathroom. The third shot seems to have elements of each – a more conventional space with standard fixtures but caught in such a way that it seems intimate and engaging, enhanced by the candlelight.

These three images take bathroom representation in a different direction, focusing on objects and people within bathrooms rather than the rooms themselves. Ranging from curious to comical, they take on a subject matter that most of us never think about when carrying our cameras around: the semi-private spaces of home and public bathrooms.
