cc2016052_134_vfThe INSIDER Summary:

• Photographer Chris Crisman photographed women working in male-dominated fields.
• Subjects include a firefighter, geologist, and a truck driver.
• Crisman hopes to show that “women’s work” is unlimited.

Photographer Chris Crisman had never met a female butcher. When an art buyer mentioned that one of her friends was a butcher based in Philadelphia, he figured it would make a compelling portrait

He’s since met a firefighter, a geologist, a truck driver, and even a taxidermist who excel in fields with skewed gender ratios.

With a photo series called “Women’s Work,” Crisman features accomplished individuals who prove that sometimes, the right man for the job is a woman.

“Women’s Work” began when photographer Chris Crisman met a female butcher in Philadelphia.

“It’s been illustrated historically as a male position, and so I thought this was a cool opportunity to photograph a female butcher,” he said.

That portrait sparked his photo series highlighting women working in male-dominated fields.

He spent time on the job with the women he featured in order to watch them in their element.
