“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.
