Melbourne Cleaners, a series about, uhhm, Melbourne’s cleaners

Melbourne Cleaners is a series in which the invisible, under-appreciated, under-acknowledged working men and women of an entire city are given the spotlight. Australian photographer Greg Briggs spent over 6 months documenting the cleaners of museums, hotels, theatres, and other establishments, as they work tirelessly keeping those places intact long after everyone has left.

The images also detail the loneliness that comes with the job. These workers usually work alone, having only the decors and museum exhibits as company. Briggs’ exploration of a cleaner’s job reminds us that it is mostly an unrewarding vocation, but someone has to do it.
