The stunning photographs in this book are not only an
anthropological study on the types of work done all over the world
and the different societies which undertake them, but are also a
real look at work that is still carried out by manual labour,
usually away from the Western World. This fascinating collection
reveals the intricacies of these jobs and the people who perform
them, looking in detail at farmers, tailors, mechanics and a huge
number of other industries where the physical work of men and women
create communities who pride themselves on ingenuity and
creativity. ' People at Work' is a captivating look at the
socioeconomic development of different communities around the world
and how they are fundamentally shaped by the type of work they
perform. The evolution of technology in the modern age has meant
that most job titles have become ambiguous and the notion of work
in the traditional sense has been lost to a certain extent. This
beautiful volume looks at the hands-on approach to work in an
innovative way. AUTHOR: Jago Corazza is a journalist and publicist,
