There is something so organic about a person at work, at least the type I have in mind.
That’s why whenever I go to Iran, I must absolutely visit a bazaar, a market. And I must absolutely have a camera to take pictures of vendors, taking a catnap on the carpets they are selling, demonstrating their products, yelling out to passersby, smiling counting the money, bargaining with buyers almost every single time. Ideally, I would go to a Middle Eastern market for my Person at Work assignment. But that’s not feasible for many reasons.
But I will share with you a favorite picture I did take over the summer when I was in Iran.
Interaction with the person at work, I feel, is really key to this assignment. That, and observing them doing the work for a period of time, until you get to feel their rhythm of work, their pain, perhaps, their joy of working. I’m excited about this one!
