Vince Aletti from The New Yorker writes:

Following previous series on cheerleaders, football players, bodybuilders, and flight attendants, Finke shows color photographs of construction workers on the job, usually in New York. Some pictures are of the site itself, but guys in hard hats dominate (only one woman appears here), and most of them go about their business, paying little or no attention to the photographer in their midst. The work may not be staged, but it rarely feels spontaneous; Finke has such a strong sense of composition that even the most casual moments are perfectly framed.
