Toiletpaper is a bi-annual magazine made up solely of surreal and ambiguous images.
It contains zero text or ads ( except for the long list of contributors, assistants, stylists and producers), contains only full page color photograph spreads that appropriate the slick production values of commercial photography, to deliver surreal, beautiful (or repulsive) images.
