This Working Man

This Working Man is a series of short portraits of men at work. It is about practiced motion, kinetic movement, bodies, and forms. It is about a particular type of man: exceedingly capable, strong, confident, and diligent.

The project is a search for humble masculinity and an unapologetic admittance of the purely primordial attraction of hard work. Each short video is a ballet of form and gesture, idealizing the grace of practice and the exuberance of a job well done.

This Working Man will be filmed over the course of a two-month road trip across the U.S., from July 1 to August 31, 2013. To read about the road trip, please visit the travel journal. To recommend a working man for this project, please submit here.
