He Documents Workstations Of People Who Work With Their Hands

Work is a photography series that lets viewers be a fly on the wall in various work atmospheres.

Shot by Sanwal Deen, Work focuses specifically on individuals who use their hands each day. Each shot is framed from above with the focus of the individual's work centered in the middle. You'll spot work stations being used by artisans like butchers, florists, drummers, cobblers, and typesetters.

“I have always had a fascination with desks and workspaces,” Deen says. “I thought that looking at different work spaces throughout the world might be a good way to get my message across.” 

I have always had a fascination with desks and workspaces.

By comparing work spaces side-by-side, Deen feels that cultural differences are more easily highlighted.

“A butcher in Columbus, Ohio may use a very different set of tools, and operate in a very different environment than a butcher in China," he continues, "but in the end, both are doing the same act and are most likely using their hands that in that act.” 

Currently, the series only highlights workers in the US, by Deen hopes to expand the project to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East next.
