The inspiration for this work stemmed from a great street rangefinder photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson, who shot fashion street photographs for different women and men from different social classes and community.

This project was planned and invented based on the construction site and building workers. It was designed to document workers’ behaviour and the way they dress, act, and make contact socially when they are not on the building site. The main purpose of this project was to reveal and expose this particular group of people’s fashion and way of living. Most of my perspectives were focused on humanity, which included those construction workers’ actions and their true tone. By working with a digital rangefinder camera I found the passion and enthusiasm. There was a connection between me and the camera; the rangefinder allowed me to have the purest documenting experience.
