From 2008 to 2012, photographers Eiður Snorri Eysteinsson and Snorri Sturluson—who work collectively as the Snorri Bros.—set out to capture images of an iconic part of quotidian New York City life: the Laundromat. The Icelandic shutterbugs traveled across the five boroughs, documenting dozens of these small storefronts, finding all sorts of unique signage and interesting architecture along the way.


The fruits of that labor are on view in Laundromat, a collection out today, from powerHouse Books. Check out a small selection of photos from the book above, which show the variety of laundry shops throughout New York City. (We especially love the elaborately decorated spot on Hillside Avenue, with carnivalesque turrets.)
