When he created the photo series below, called Women's Work, photographer Chris Crisman did so because he wanted to educate his children (and the rest of the world) that they can be whatever they want to be. The pictures you'll see completely undo the notion of "women's work" and "men's work." But beyond the message, you'll see that they also stand on their own merits as visually striking works of art, with warm contrast and lush color. See more of the artist's terrific work on his website here.
