A serie of portraits shot at the Mumbai’s oldest laundry hub. Mumbai’s oldest laundry hub, the 140-year-old Dhobi Ghat, is also the largest open-air space of its kind in the world. The thousands of laundrymen living here hand-wash clothes that arrive from all over the city. One can easily identify the spot outside Mahalaxmi Railway station from the colourful rows of drying clothes. Hand-wash remains the primary choice of the majority here. Clothes are not only washed but also bleached, ironed and dispatched to their various destinations. The location has even earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most number of washed clothes at a single location.
