The Working Journal

“I love telling people’s stories… by photographing what they do for work.”

Michael Fiedler is a former Navy photojournalist.

He’s continuing his passion for photography and storytelling in his new book: ‘The Working Journal.’

“I try to find people who look good visually doing what they do.”

The book features 60 beautiful stills and hand-written reflections from the subjects.

From circus jugglers to orchestra conductors, boxers, and even architects - like New York’s own George Ranalli.

Ranalli is the pioneer of loft living. He reflected on his 40+ year career in NYC, helping to renovate many old factories and neighborhoods.
