People at work: photo by Steve McCurryBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/people-at-work-photo-by-steve-mccurry1
Steve McCurry's photo series about work. Here you will not see clerks or taxi drivers, here are the owners of traditional or harsh professions – fishermen, firefighters, artists and so on. Mostly third world countries, but there is also the United States, with its collapsed world trade center. There are masters of teeth insertion right on the street, poppy pickers. When you look at how these people earn their living, you think how good it is that you were not born in India or the Middle East.

The miners give the foreman their personal seals so that he can remove the impression. This is necessary for their subsequent identification, if there is a blockage in the mine.
