In 1993 Sebastião Salgado published his seminal work, Workers, which shone a light on the often treacherous conditions of manual labor jobs around the world. The message is just as strong today, and renowned book publisher Taschen will soon release a republication of the work. 

Workers: An Archaeology of the Industrial Age by Sebastião Salgado pays tribute to the time-honored tradition of manual labor. Jam-packed with beautiful thought-provoking photographs, Workers acts as a peek into a life that many think is long forgotten – but especially in more impoverished locations, this life is very much still a reality.
