Incredible portraits make the idea of “men’s work” obsolete

Inspired by a woman who left her job as a web designer in NYC to become a butcher in Philly, commercial photographer Cris Crisman started shooting women doing jobs traditionally considered “men’s work.” His incredible portraits show just how misguided that term really is.

Here’s the incredible image that kicked the idea off:

Here’s the second image in the #womenswork project. Heather Marold Thomason is the Head Butcher at @kensingtonquarters in Philadelphia. She is also the one that got this whole project started. Just a few years she shifted her career and is now a force in the sustainable food movement. This was such an great time making the image with her. Check out @opgastronomia to learn more about all the cool things she’s working on. Thanks to all who helped out on this image.

“Heather Marold Thomason is the Head Butcher at @kensingtonquarters in Philadelphia,” Crisman writes. “She is also the one that got this whole project started. Just a few years she shifted her career and is now a force in the sustainable food movement.”

Crisman started photographing the women last February, titling the project, “Women’s Work.” The resulting images are simply — stunning. 


“I was raised to believe that I could do whatever I wanted to when I grew up. I want to pass down a similar message to my children and without caveats,” Crisman told the photography site, a Photo Editor.

“I want to raise my children knowing that their dreams have no limits and that they have parents supporting them to dive into anything they feel passionate about.”

YES.
