The idea for the small trades project was to look at 'trades' that people had in order to gain money on the side due to the hard economic times. First, I found some crossing guards, the first one that I found was just a college student sitting in a lawn chair doing his homework and then the second was an older man who thoroughly enjoyed his job as a crossing guard. I then happened upon a lady in a dog suit waiving a sign on the corner of a busy street for her company and then on the opposite corner was another lady waiving the Little Ceaser's sign. I then found myself on campus taking some food to my wife while she was at work and decided to take a photograph of her and her colleague.
These Small trades are not necessarily occupations, but once again, a way to survive the economic downturn.
