Her beautiful launderette

Megan Holmes has been posting some beautiful photo essays lately. She has an especially good eye for empty public spaces, and for the visual poetry hiding out inside places and things we've all seen a million times before, like gas stations and motel balconies and boxes of Bounce dryer sheets and used-up ketchup packets. Some pictures feel cinematic, but in a Jem Cohen sort of way. Cinema not as literal kineticism at all, but as epic stillness. These are some of my favorites:

Doing laundry
Dinner with Grandma
Going on tour
Getting stuck in an airport
