Everything was wonderful. In these photographs, you’ll notice palpable beauty, healthy bodies, nice clothes, and exquisite hairstyles, you might smell a well-matched perfume. The context is one of economic bonanza. Healthy, erect; these workers model the best employees: tense, but obedient; frightened, but with their lives resolved — what André Gorz sums up in his sentence: “To lose one’s life to gain a living.” Ximena Peredo text for We Love Our Employees.
