Given all the hefty decisions that today’s world leaders often have to grapple with on a daily basis, it can be easy to forget that they’re people too. Italy-based artist Cristina Guggeri, however, hasn’t forgotten, and she’s out to remind the rest of us with a series of images called Il Dovere Quotidiano, or “The Daily Duty,” that humanize some of the world’s most famous leaders by imagining what they might look like when they answer nature’s call.

If you like these tongue-in-cheek images, be sure to check out the rest of Guggeri’s work, because she’s quite a prolific artist! Read on for her answers to Bored Panda’s questions.

The choice to capture personalities in their daily duty is not only the externalization of a idea shared by all, but implies another kind of message: the powerful, being personalities of public importance, should not only perform their physiological duty, but they should realize what ordinary people (who elected them) expect from them: their ‘daily duty’

The digital photomontage offers different artistic possibilities. It takes a lot of patience to make one work and assemble various pieces of photographs to create a totally new one

The works are made with digital art, with a popular graphics program. They are montages of different pictures even of small parts. It takes a lot of patience, artistic sensibility and a good dose of humor
