MEAT AND GREET Livestock wranglers make the final cut.

Time Out says

Imagine the epic photographic series of Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado granted startling mobility, and you’ll have some sense of Glawogger’s remarkable presentation of extreme labour worldwide. From illegal Ukrainian coal mining to Indonesian sulphur extraction via Pakistani shipbreaking yards and the Boschian inferno of a Nigerian slaughterhouse (difficult viewing indeed), it becomes very clear that beneath the watercooler veneer of the selectively operating post-industrial information age, work for many millions proceeds apace with even greater risks and hardship. Essential viewing, this committed  work restores worth and value to those who, unseen and unheard, literally create our world.
