Photographer Joshua Blackburn has made it his mission to document every remaining launderette in London. As high streets grow ever more homogenous, these are one of the few businesses that retain their striking individuality. But they're an endangered species: many close every year in the UK. 'The colours, signs, machines, surfaces and geometry are impossible to resist,' says Blackburn, whose project started as an online blog. Launderama, which features a selection of photos alongside an introductory essay and map, captures the colourful design and community spirit of the humble launderette.
