In March 2018, Joshua Blackburn embarked on a project to photograph every launderette in London; from Pinner to Penge and Catford to the Isle of Dogs. Twelve months later, he had visited every one of the 462 launderettes in the Greater London postcode district.
The impact of this series lies in the portrait it creates not simply of a unique institution but of London itself. The photographs capture the individuality, aesthetics and humanity of London’s last remaining public laundries.
A two week exhibition of Launderama runs at the WWW Gallery, 81 Salusbury Road, London NW6 6NH from November 2nd to 17th, with limited edition prints available to buy.
The series has also been turned into a book by the wonderful Hoxton Mini Press, and is now available to order.
