A Study in the Banal

Douglas Wilson has amassed a collection of photographed hand dryers. The success of such an undertaking requires dedication and world travel. "This is a study in the banal. The boring. The completely uninteresting. The things we see everyday. The utilitarian objects that become invisible. But it is fascinating that the absolute banality of the objects is what makes them all so unique and interesting to me. These images are a culmination of my travels around the world - photographs of hand dryers in public bathrooms everywhere from Sydney to Beijing, Cairo to Vienna."
