This is Gloria. She washes the windows at Strings Ramen on Archer Ave in Chicago every week. Turns out she has her own small business washing windows for businesses all over the city. She told me today that she really loves washing windows, in part because when you’re done “everything looks brand new, ” and, “you just feel like you really accomplished something.”
Gloria is a survivor. She’s got a radiant beauty and intense inner strength that I hope comes through at least a little in these pictures.
