Saturday Morning Laundry Ladies

One Saturday morning, I happened upon a group of ladies doing their washing. I asked if I could photograph them. They agreed. A few days later, I returned, to give them prints. They were thrilled and invited me into their homes to take more photographs- photographs of their children, visiting siblings, cousins, friends; photographs of them cooking and playing and getting ready for New Years Eve. I took back more prints. They requested more shoots. And so it went on.

I am the didi who constantly takes their photographs and returns with prints in two days. I visit them almost every day. I call them my Saturday Morning Laundry Ladies.
