Telling the story of everyday, ordinary things, and making them extraordinary.
Laundry Day in Havana
Bright clothing hangs outside the window of an equally bright building. A pink towel clipped onto a thin wire outside a building that looks to be hanging on by a thread. Home to a baby girl with a pink striped crib bumper; home to the owner of a pink towel and a polka dot bikini; home to the owner of a jean jacket; home to the owner of a pretty tulip tablecloth. Inspired by laundry hanging outside apartment windows, "Laundry Day in Havana" gives a glimpse into life in Havana.
Armed with a tetanus shot and a camera, I capture battered, weathered, and damaged dumpsters. My series "Odoriferous Beauty" takes a closer look at the large, unsightly containers you pass everyday. Beauty is truly all around us, in this case, even on a dumpster.
