When you first see Mikhael Subotsky photos you cant help thanking god that last night you were drinking a cup of tea and watching Eastenders. This is one of his epic photos from his 2004 project Die Vier Hoeke (the four corners), a study of the South African prison system. Johnny fortune (who is climbing out of the industrial washer) dislikes the communal showers and chooses to bath like this during his shift in the prison laundry. Thank god for tea and Eastenders.
