    Through the lenses of donated cameras, this inspiring collection of photographs serves as a testimonial to the lives of people society often overlooks: the working class.

    They are everywhere — the low-wage workers who make our clothes, look after our children, and open our doors. They are the millions of people who form the fabric of our society — but theirs is a world rarely seen.

    In Unseen America, a program created by Esther Cohen, thousands of workers were given cameras and lessons in photography, and then asked to document their lives. Through this collection of black-and-white images — sometimes poignant, sometimes celebratory, and always honest — the workers gave voice to their lives.
