We don’t usually take photos of people working, unless we are Lewis Hind. It’s hard to capture work in a picture, unless you have staged it, as Hind did. Even Millet’s “The Gleaners” is undercut by a nostalgia for The Rural, at least in my view. Motion and sweat — yes, you can get them. But is there a picture of the Wright Brothers or Steve Wozniak “working”?
