A creative husband and wife figuratively made lemonade out of lemons: They turned potholes into works of art.
Davide Luciano and Claudia Ficca have collaborated on a number of projects. Luciano works as a photographer, while Ficca is a food stylist. The two have combined to shoot series such as Gourmet Mouse Traps (fitted with bait "for the pickiest mouse") and Meals Interrupted (dining tables disrupted by various events).
In 2011, the couple re-created a number of scenes around potholes in four cities. Photos from New York, Los Angeles, Montreal, and Toronto transform the dreaded road nuisances into ice coolers, ponds, grape buckets, and much more.
"This project started as a humorous way to expose the ridiculous pothole problem in our hometown," Luciano told us via email. "Along the way we realized that sometimes we can't change things that frustrate us [like potholes], but we have the power to change our perspective toward those things. This is what this project is really about."Read More »from Couple Makes Art From Potholes
