Free to Use and Reuse: Work in America

These images depict a diversity of work in America, as found across collections generated by the American Folklife Center's field survey projects between 1977 and 1998. In urban and rural communities--and in settings encompassing traditional occupations, small businesses, factories, and natural resource management--you will find in these photographs a wide range of people engaged in jobs that contribute to economies, individual identities, and cultural communities.
