Here’s a favorite of mine by Lewis Hines

I have always been fascinated by historical photographs of the industrial  labor force. Like the iconic black and white image in the ‘Lunch Atop a Skyscraper’ photo, which shows New York construction workers perched on a cross beam high above the city and the work of Lewis Hines documenting industry of all types. Taking these types of photos requires serious access. I have done my best to help document the industrial labor force today by covering related stories for local publications. Here are a few of those projects. I expect more to come soon.
