From the File: Janitor


A photo book depicting a man working and close-up details of him that approach abstraction. The images of a “Janitor” in this book were re-photographed at the City of Newark, NJ Municipal Archive. The author found them in a folder labeled “Janitor” with no other information about the individual depicted, the photographer or intended usage. Tracing paper with an editors crop marks suggest images were reproduced, perhaps as a visual instruction manual for city employees.
