Labor Day spotlight on MIT’s custodians


For Labor Day for MIT's News Office, I photographed a handful of custodians in the school's Department of Facilities. I've really shot against a backdrop and I had about 45 minutes to photograph 11 people before they clocked out after a night shift, so the project was a wonderful challenge. We chose a simple white background to emphasize the faces and personality across the diverse staff.

The images ended up as MIT's homepage for the Labor Day weekend.
