ALL WOMAN AT WORK…. THE “FIREWOOD” COLLECTORS
In my previous captures in the series, I concentrated on a family and family life, over a weekend. On Monday, a new week, new responsibilities…. I want to show a few woman’s face expressions, while at work, what they do or .. what is expected from them as woman, wife and mother, to bring their share in family life. Now it is time to show what woman do, where and how they work.

    i cannot tell you in words how these portraits have touched me….just seeing women on the other side of the planet in their daily lives gives me such perspective on my own….these need to be in a book, mags….really they do….it would be a wonderful compilation…

    Mags… Jan has hit the nail on the head… these images provoke such emotion and ground me each time I see them. A book is a fantastic idea xx
