Silk Workers

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

picture of a textile worker amidst cones of thread, silk? The Big Picture is a blog by the Boston Globe where they post (I know this will be a surprise) big pictures. High quality professional photographers taking narrative photos. Are they all used in news articles or are these the extras (or a combination)? Haven't cared enough to find out. It is enough for me that they are there for us to see. Each post has a theme, and this set which caught my eye is called "at work". I find it interesting in a set of 45 photos capturing jobs ranging from fireworks packing to model train building that 3 appear to be silk workers.
