A project which took photographer Thijs Heslenfeld on a journey across seven continents over the course of twenty years has finally been completed and Thijs is set to release a new book about his journey.

Men At Work book coverThe new book, titled 'Men At Work', will be launches this week in Amsterdam along side an exhibition at the Melkweg Gallery which will feature 37 images from the book.

The project portrays men from around the globe in their working environment. Only natural light was used to shoot each of the images and no styling or post production work was carried out.

Thijs said: "Men At Work shows the viewer the importance of work in our lives and challenges them to question their own choices. Is my identity based on my work, or is it the other way around?

There is a story behind these images which shows how work, and the position it takes in the life of an individual, tells us a lot about how society is organised and oriented.

In the wealthy, capitalist Western world, for example, men seem to identify strongly with their work: they are what they do. Their existence seems to be based on their job. In less advanced countries, this is often quite different: people tend to do work that suits them."

The exhibition opens to the public on 1 March 2012 and runs until 1 April 2012 at the Melkweg Gallery, Amsterdam.

The book, which is available in hardback with a silkscreen cover, features 80 pages and is priced at 17.50 Euros. For more information about the book, or to order a copy visit: Men At Work
