Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break II
by Sharon Lockhart
Publisher's Description
This 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.
