Reportages by French-Romanian photographer Geraldine Aresteanu are featuring everyday lives of factories, industrial plants, manufacturing facilities and production sites. Geraldine captures blue collars at work, re-emphasizing the importance and the role of each and every worker in a production & manufacturing environment. The photoreportage illustrates a given moment in the human life of an enterprise.
Photo Reportages by Geraldine Aresteanu are also following the working habits, gestures, routines, activities and acumen of various individual or independent crafts (grocers, bakers, chefs, watchmakers, shoemakers, hairdressers & barbers, tailors & dressmakers, carpenters, blacksmiths, gardeners, plumbers, janitors, goldsmiths, butchers, miners, fishermen, postmen, diggers, housepainters, etc.).
Geraldine’s lenses thus pursue people at their work place in either large facilities (e.g. power plants, quarries, mines, factories, drilling sites, oil & gas stations, etc.) or small professional workshops.
“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who!
The thumbprint of our photoreportages lasts long in the affective impression of the individual participant and even longer in the collective memory of the enterprise.
The photography journal can result into an exhibition, a company book / newsletter / brochure, a year-calendar, but – moreover – it surely conveys a personalized ‘thank you’ message to every worker who anonymously contributes to the wellbeing of a company / enterprise.
