Working for a living

As I moved around the world I often photographed people at work. Most of us need to work - many of us even like our work. Some of us learn to accept our work.

People at work are interesting - applying their physical strength or skills often together with a concentration during which their other life is put oneside.

Many of the images in this gallery are taken from my larger PBase collection. Some of the images will start their life in this gallery.
