One of Hine’s most recognized images. The workers on the empire state building just casually having there lunch on a crane creates such a shock to the viewer. He has captured them as if they don’t know he is there. The casual expressions make the workers seem like it is not in any way dangerous and is just an everyday experience. The bold tones of the crane stand out as the buildings in the background are flat and don’t stand out as much.
