construction laborers retain a specific photographic intrigue for me. despite being commonplace in both the urban and rural landscape their distinction from the civilian offers contrast to the often monotonous happenstance of tourists and passerbys. the omnipresence of the laborer affords the photographer a chance to seize an image of humanity at work, when corporate and industrial drudgery is predominately executed in places inaccessible to the general populace.
