Today’s photoessay follows on from the last On Assignment; it’s the aboveground portion to the earlier underground portion focusing on the workers. A sense of scale is needed to appreciate the extent of the project, and this was the purpose of these images.
This photoessay splits into color and monochrome parts; one is commercial-friendly color abstraction and the other is entirely for my personal satisfaction to provide above-ground contextual and stylistic continuity with the earlier workers set. I’ve included a number of more abstract images in the color set; it somehow seemed fitting when focusing on the details. I shot this with a mix of equipment over an extended period of time – mostly Nikon D800Es, however. Enjoy! MT
