Working in America


Working in America is a multi-platform documentary initiative chronicling the everyday challenges, triumphs and realities of working. Within the common thread that everyone has a relationship to work, this powerful visual and audio initiative is inspired by the 40th anniversary of Studs Terkel’s influential publication, Working, as a springboard for a contemporary conversation about the meaning of work and the physical and psychological realities of working in America today. This original project was developed by Project& and the Pulitzer-Prize winning photographer and Project& Fellow, Lynsey Addario, and in January 2016 received a prestigious MacArthur grant for documentary and interactive projects.

Working in America’s three components include: a photographic exhibit with photos by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Lynsey Addario and the exhibit co-designed with Jeanne Gang + Studio Gang Architects and Jane M Saks; an NPR radio series co-produced by Project& with Radio Diaries; and an online living archive, “Your Working Story”.
