Photographer Yvette Meltzer examines the beauty of spinning colors within public laundromat machines in her series of photographs titled “Revolutions.” She spent over two years on the project which she describes at her website as a journey of capturing abstract mandalas that transform into faces and forms - both human and animal-like.
Yvette quotes Pablo Picasso saying “There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality” and elaborates on what Picasso said by pointing to her own series of photographs: it starts with simple fabric inside of a dryer, and in tandem with her camera, reality becomes transformed. I really think it's an interesting examination, where a series of photographs can be viewed multiple times by multiple people and still allow for new discoveries to be found within the shapes and colors. She noted to me, "I hope that the series captures both the universality of human experience – each of us doing laundry - and the uniqueness of each of us, at each moment, as we revolve, and hopefully evolve through this life.”
