Hard Work Portraits

Miners and welders, loggers and metallurgists – these and many other people of hard manual labor literally work hard to secure the industrial progress we have today and ensure all the benefits and comforts of modern life style. Of course, more and more automation is introduced in every specific field of industry, though the role of manual labor still remains significant. There is something special about people, who work physically. Such type of work seems to be the most honest and true activity. With the portraits of hard work people, we have decided to share with Cruzine readers today, you will be able to feel that honesty and truth.

Indeed, there is so much humanity and purity about hard work. The faces of workers, even covered with dust, may radiate much more light, purity, and sincerity than the well-groomed faces of white-collars. Looking into the eyes of hard workers, one can find a unique range of feelings, which is not easy to find anywhere else. Along with extreme tiredness and suffering, there are also sparkles of pure happiness, satisfaction of the completed work, and understanding of the value, hard manual work has always had for the human civilization progress.
