Revolutions, Mesmerizing Photos of Laundry Spinning in Dryers That Capture Abstract, Human, and Animal Forms

Revolutions by Yvette Meltzer

In her photo series “Revolutions,” photographer Yvette Meltzer captured mesmerizing abstract designs, and curiously human- and animal-like forms in the spinning laundry at Chicago laundromats.

After taking multitudes of outdoor laundry images over the years, it was in Chicago in the cold of winter when my curiosity led me into local Laundromats where, drawn to the colors of laundry spinning in the dryers, I began taking photos. I never imagined the mandalas I would ultimately see when I went to the computer to view the digital images of this spinning laundry. Therein I saw faces and forms – both human and animal-like. Thus was born my revolving laundry series which I call “Revolutions.”
