Artfully Walls was Selected to Debut the Collection by Photographer Sivan Askayo as Limited-Edition Prints

Laundry from London, England - Askayo's collection is an indirect portrait of her subjects revealed through their clothing and linens.

As an artist, Sivan Askayo photographs what she loves—travel, street art, food—and tends to immerse herself entirely within her environment. This unique tendency allows Sivan to capture the true essence and personality of her surroundings. Sivan's laundry project, aptly titled 'Intimacy Under the Wires,' began with a random shot taken in Jaffa one inconspicuous Friday afternoon in April of 2010. As fate would have it, the single shot was destined to act as the catalyst for an entire series consisting of numerous snapshots, each offering a glimpse into people's lives through their laundry. This global photography collection is intimate and alluring, breeding a voyeuristic sense of energy and rhythm as the breeze blows her subjects dry.

As the project has evolved and grown, Sivan has garnered a worldwide following, consisting of fans that often invite her to visit them in their countries to snap an image of their laundry and their lives. 'Intimacy Under the Wires' has been featured by The Independent UK, Phaidon, Feature Shoot, Design*Sponge and is now available for sale for the first time as limited edition prints, exclusively with Artfully Walls.
