Launderette Photographs

Jade Lord (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


A compelling motivation to collect images of the launderettes while travelling has lead to this unique photographic series. This compulsion first started around the time of giving up using a washing machine for a year as a social experiment in 2013.

This fascination is not entirely explainable. However, launderettes reflect something of the history of an area, often featuring dated signage and interiors, which have unique aesthetic appeal. Their existence also confronts the assumption that all homes have a washing machine and tumble dryer.
