The Best Woman For the Job:
Portraits of Non-Traditional Working Women
Though it is more common today, in 1990 when this project was created, women pursuing careers as a longshoreman, airline mechanic, railroad engineer, laborer, or carpenter was often defying the expectations of family, friends, and male co-workers. I would like this project to credit them for their courage and tenacity as role models for others, male and female, to make independent choices. The Museum of Industry in Baltimore received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to travel this solo exhibition.
40 10”x10” Silver Gelatin Prints and quotes by the women represented.
