Wuhan Boiler Company Workers, published in 2009, is a "corporate book". Continuing his engagement with China's industrial culture, Pierre Bessard fashions portraits of the oft-overlooked people behind the nation's tremendous economic growth. The series comprises hundreds of color photographs of factory workers, as well as the surroundings in which the laborers work.
This is a beautifully produced book (linen hardcover with a pasted cover photograph), presented in a linen clamshell box with a second cover image pasted.
