    Workers photograph the world they see - Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, NY
    The national unseenamerica organization was founded in 2000 by the AFL-CIO, the national Workforce Development Institute and Bread and Roses — a working people's art project sponsored by the Service Employees International Union Local 1199. The initial focus was migrant workers, but the project soon began recording the lives of Philippine nannies, garment workers and steel mill employees. A New York state branch was formed a year and a half ago.

    "This was a type of self-actualization," says regional coordinator Zoeann Murphy, a 24-year-old resident of Troy. "You learn about yourself when you turn the camera on your life. You start thinking about how you're being seen and how you fit in the larger labor movement."

    It is wonderful to see this on your blog. I would like to add that unseenamerica is a program started by the Bread and Roses Cultural Project of 1199SEIU and that unseenamerica NYS has began later and is a collaboration of the Workforce Development Institute, the NYS AFL-CIO and Bread and Roses. Our book unseenamerica:Photos and Stories by Workers was released on May Day 2006 and can be found on our website: www.bread-and-roses.com.
