-  Forms part of a group of images documenting lunchtime work processes at the Hot Grill, 669 Lexington Avenue, Clifton, New Jersey (just southeast of Paterson), before and during the lunchtime rush. One of the Hot Grill's four owners, Nick Doris, allowed me to stand on and behind the preparation line to photo-document this work.
