Maria Washes the Dishes

Perhaps we are just as beautiful doing an everyday task, surrounded by the objects and dirt of kitchen life, some of them beautiful and some of them just functional.  









Maria did not know I was taking these photos until I was done.  Wouldn't it be interesting to see our kitchen work through someone else's lens?

  1. Yes! I see nothing but beauty there. So how realistic is it to say, as I often would, that there's nothing in my kitchen but mess and chaos and why-the-heck-do-these-people-keep-eating?

  2. Wow! What a BIG, BEAUTIFUL kitchen. The large, lovely windows let in so much light, and where there is light there is beauty. Wide sills on which to put things, what a concept! I wish I had some like that. Whoever replaced the windows on our house decided that the the wider part of the sill would be on the outside. Thanks for sharing, I'll be looking for the beauty in my everyday world, and if I don't find it I'll make what changes I can to produce some beauty. Beauty is restful and enriching.

  3. That is a really neat series. Photos of people who don't know their being photographed have such a graceful nature to them. The light and dark contrasts are quite nice, too. So is someone ELSE doing the dishes! ;)

  7. I love these images. For the past few years I have wished I could do s series photographing families' dinners, from prep through clean up. Something so intimate about these images. The beauty in the everyday.

I enjoy the conversation in the comments - thank you for that. I will answer your questions here in the comments. Please note that I don't want the world wide web to know my family's surnames and location.
