Please stop what you’re doing right now and take some time out to look at the work of photographer Tadd Myers who photographed people in America making goods with their hands.

In this day and age where many goods and services are being outsourced to other countries, to find and see American artisans in their natural element is incredibly powerful and moving. There’s a sense of profound quality in hand-made goods in the USA that just don’t seem to emanate from products imported from overseas and Tadd Myers does an excellent job of capturing the increasingly rare occurrence of such an artist within the US.
