Frank Le Petit is a Tokyo-based artist who photographs workers on streets to pay tribute to people who make Japan one of the most unique countries in the world. With his project called Hatarakimono, the French-born photographer, also known as K-Narf (Frank spelled backward) on social media, captures portraits of workers in their uniforms on the streets of Tokyo.
His project began three years ago, back in 2016 and collected images of 102 workers on the job. In his photoshootings, Frank uses a custom built travelling photo studio and snaps photographs on the scene. Cook, fireman, a shoe cobbler etc. they were all asked to stop working for a couple of minutes and model on a small stool in front of the background made of fabric.
