For episode 71 we bring you the author and photographer of the amazing book “Launderama” – Joshua Blackburn.
Joshua has found his way to photography late in life after a career in design. He embarked on a massive project to photograph all the laundrettes in London. You will find out, the how, why and when about this fantastic story and will help you understand some of the pictures better. It’s not a book you can say fits one style of photography, it encompasses abstract art, the geometry of lines, documentary and street all rolled into one!
