An intriguing project exploring workspaces around the world
US-based photographer Sanwal Deen, originally from Pakistan, is working on a series of images depicting careers around the world by shooting workspaces from above.
To date, Deen has photographed 12 people, but his eventual aim is to shoot 100. He uses a Hasselblad X1D with a 45mm lens
and says, ‘ Typically it is shot with the camera attached to a boom tripod. The tripod is old and bulky, so I need to add counterweights on one end so it doesn’t topple. I place two speedlights on either side of the workspace. The entire set- up process typically takes 15- 45 minutes, depending on how big or small the space is, and how busy it is.’
