Lunch Break II

€ 25.00

His book evolved from an archive of images collected by artist Sharon Lockhart while researching her project "Lunch Break"--a series of films and photographs she produced from a long-term collaboration with the workers of Bath Iron Works in Maine, whom she portrayed as they took their lunch break, a classic workday ritual.

A companion volume to that project, this publication offers a stunning array of images drawn from a variety of sources, including WPA documentary photographs, Old Master oil paintings, contemporary art, and photographs by Lockhart herself. The result is a rich visual narrative that explores the pursuit of leisure in the context of work.
