A Mixed Load of Women, Wash and WordBook - 2009
Lavanderia is an experience in written word and photography. It highlights the universal ritual and common interaction of people, places, and things found between loads of laundry. Lavanderia gives the audience a unique look into an otherwise ordinary chore by giving it voice and visual. It celebrates the task often deemed women's work and honors the history of washer women. It touches on everything from labor strikes and scrub boards to present day love affairs rinsed away in the automatic double loader. Lavanderia is a reminder that incredible strength and spirit can reside in the most routine spaces.
