Helen Couchman’s Workers

Beijing-based artist, Granite Studio friend, and occasional anonymous commentator Helen Couchman has been winging around the world this past month promoting her new book Workers.  Last December, Helen snuck onto the construction site for the Bird’s Nest and the Water Cube and offered to take the portraits of any worker who wished to have his or her photograph taken.  Helen then returned the next week and presented each person she photographed with their own copy of the print to keep.  The Australian newspaper The Age this week features an audio slideshow of Helen’s photographs and commentary on her project.  Be sure to check it out and congratulations, Helen!
