At Work

When the economy makes big news, many photographs of people at work come across the wires, usually to help illustrate a particular story or event. By collecting these disparate photos over the past few months, I found that a global portrait emerged of we humans producing things. People assembling, generating, and building items small and large, mundane and expensive, trivial and important. I hope you enjoy this look into some people's work lives around the world.

Although the global economic downturn no longer appears to be heading off a cliff, signs of stability or recovery are still sporadic and tenuous. As news stories look for signs of of the direction of economic indicators, photographs fill the wires of people working from all over. Once more, I've collected some of these disparate photos over the past couple of months, composing another global portrait we humans at work around the world.

The Big Picture one & two

Nice stuff ay? I like how Boston consolidate all the different walks together. Work varies from Two employees check parked Hyundai cars ready for shipment, A worker adjusts Terracotta Warriors made of chocolate at the Chocolate Wonderland in Beijing, A worker prepares to destroy confiscated weapons at a steel plant in Shanghai, Funeral home styling hair on a model in Taipei, Farmer, Zoo Employee, Factory lady, Eggs production factory to Obama cigars.. Lots more, oh, different walk you see.
