Domestic Bliss by Alice Mann.

Alice Mann did this great series, giving domestic workers some of the glory they deserve considering how much they add to your middle class South African house hold.

‘The space that domestic workers exist in within these homes is an entirely complex one. They are in charge of the home at a completely familiar level, performing tasks traditionally reserved for the wife or mother. They are even considered and referred to by their employers as ‘part of the family’ due to their ’motherly’ role and constant presence in the home, yet they function in a space which is also fundamentally outside the family dynamic as employees bound by contract performing the most menial of tasks. At the end of the day these women all return to their homes and families in the outskirts of Cape Town, far removed from the wealth of their employers.’ – Alice Mann
