The Hand of the Laundress

I did a photo shoot of a hospital laundress who is retiring in December after a lifetime of service. Her hands are very descriptive of people who serve in the background of life, such as a hospital laundry, and provide neat stacks of pure white towels and sheets to people who never give thought to who did it and how they did it. Behind-the-scenes people should be brought out to a place of appreciation.
