Laundress is a self-portrait that represents humanity. A character that lives in time, that fights under a sun that gives life and sometimes death, that cleans what it has to be cleaned and lives without worrying about what tomorrow holds because always see and believe in hope, always look at what a new world could be like. It is like a painting in process, it is being built and evolving, and we all have our own vision of it.

Diana Rubi is a young photographer born in Cuba and currently a US resident. She graduated in the specialty of digital art at the Cuban Academy of Fine Arts San Alejandro. Her work outside and inside the academy were video and photo manipulation. Migrating to the US was undoubtedly the great step to discover her true interest in conceptual self-portrait, this being a method of self-knowledge and experimentation, an escape from reality to another world through which to express herself freely.
