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:

“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.”
