Photographer's Note

Acceptability of outdoor urination in a public place other than at a public urinal varies with the situation and with customs. Typically men do this standing up, and women squatting. Potential disadvantages are the "dirtyness", including smell, of urine, and some exposure of genitals. The latter can be unpleasant for the one who exposes them (modesty, lack of privacy) and/or those who can see them; it is avoided or mitigated by going to a quiet place, and/or, for men, facing a tree or wall. The more developed and crowded a place is the more urination tends to be objectional. In the countryside it is more acceptable than in a street in a town. In the latter case it is a common transgression. Often this is done after the consumption of alcoholic beverages: the alcohol causes production of additional urine as well as a reduction of inhibitions. In most places, public urination is punishable by fine, though attitudes vary widely by country...
