Eastern European Migrant Worker Portraits

Untitled, Beelitz 2006, from Workers, by Ingar Krauss
Despite globalization and open borders in the EU, low-paid hard physical labor is still the most viable source of income and survival for many men from Eastern Europe. Berlin-based photographer Ingar Krauss has documented this ongoing situation with a series of portraits that capture the dignity and despair of wokers who have travelled very long distances to earn a brutal and meager living in the farmlands of Germany. Krauss also supplies an insightful and poignant text to accompany his photos.
