Between Springmoor and Mayview, two of Raleigh's retirement centers and nursing homes, I've spent a lot of time recently around a lot of caregivers. One of those is Jean over at Mayview who does everything from hair to toenails. She works hard obviously and provides a caring service to those that can no longer take care of themselves. I knew right away I had to add her to my "Working for a Living" Series. Seems like I've been shooting a number of portraits lately related to hair. Maybe another series will come out of it.
