Entrepreneur extraordinaire, Richard Branson is famously quoted as saying “I don’t think of work as work and play as play… it’s all just living!” As a professional photographer for the last 27 years, I have to agree.
I am currently working on a new portfolio: #WORK?. A series of environmental portraits of individuals “working” and/or “playing” at their jobs. The goal of the project is to highlight people doing what could easily be defined either as “work” but to capture those individuals, so fully immersed in that activity (in a state of “flow”) that the line between work and play has blurred or vanished all together.
Whether you know someone who loves their job, hates their job, lives for the weekend or couldn’t tell you what day of the week it is let us know, it doesn’t matter. If their doing something interesting, I want to photograph them.
The following photographs are Ice Carver’s photographed at a competition in Colorado. Work? Play? You tell me!
