Humans at work
Beyond Work is driven by a simple purpose, to unearth the lives of people whose jobs are often invisible, and for the stories that come out to inspire us all to make the world of work a respectful, humane and kind place that rewards people with more than money.
Beyond Work documents humans at work using words and reportage photography, with no judgement or glorification. It's an attempt at unearthing the social, cultural and functional world of work that’s invisible in everyday life.
This work is about looking at and observing everyday life, and in turn inspiring people to be more aware and sensitive to the needs of humans at work.

Alarm clocks primed
These are stories about the kind of work you might see at 5 am on a cold November morning when nearly everyone else is tucked up in bed sleeping, alarm clocks primed. There is a lot to learn about a person by shadowing them at work, and even more by observing them as they transition from home to work and back again.
This work aims to inspire the people that manage, create or have influence over our workplaces to think about people not just as a resource to include in profit and productivity calculations, but as daughters, dads, sisters, friends and above all else humans with needs way beyond money.
