I have grown up in a family of mechanics so I thought every family just fixed things themselves when they broke. It was not until high school when I was one of the only ones changing my own oil that I realized that the day and age of the handyman was dwindling.
My parents own a forklift business and I think that some of the most interesting people I have met in my life have walked through their front doors, from the family man to the wanted. Speaking of, at one of the places I went to take photos for this assignment that manager went out and asked each employee if they had any warrants out for their arrest before I was allowed to take their photo. When I went to take one mechanics photo he said I was not allowed to take his photo, "for legal reasons..." Like I said I have met some of the most interesting people. I think these photos speak for themselves.
