Mapusa Road Washermen by Henri Kartmann

At daybreak, the light is splendid on the plain of Mapusa road. The laundry seems to float in the void. The laundry team is already hard at work. They are low caste people, none of them speak English, but after exchanging tea and cigarettes contact is established and I spend the morning with them.

At daybreak, the light is splendid on the plain of Mapusa road. The laundry seems to float in the void.

The laundry team is already hard at work. They are low caste people, none of them speak English, but after exchanging tea and cigarettes contact is established and I spend the morning with them.

Far from stereotyped images, gaiety is essential. I’m more dealing with a sports team whose members are “teasing” than with poor people who are suffering. And yet poverty is very present, they squat in the surrounding shacks and live in obvious precariousness, they come for the season and wash the clothes of the hotels on the coast and a little work clothes. The following year I brought them the prints of their photos, they found me like a dear friend, their joyful hospitality remains etched in my memory.
