Artist Depicts World Leaders On Toilets Because Everybody Poops (Photos)

by Emily Arata

Even the most important people visit the bathroom, no matter how dignified they act the rest of the time.

A digitally edited series from Italian artist Cristina Guggeri shows the world's most powerful politicians and religious leaders taking a free moment to perform what she jokingly calls "The Daily Duty," which also happens to be the name of the series ("Il Dovere Quotidiano").

Although the images could be construed as disrespectful to these intelligent, driven people, look at it this way: Guggeri's taking the time to remind us all that even those who're famous need to spend undignified time on the toilet.

When the title is stripped away, we're all just humans.
