Michael Miller spent years working as a line cook in various restaurant kitchens before discovering print in undergrad at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. As the years passed, the precarious nature of this situation began to set in. If he missed a busy brunch shift, he might not be able to pay rent. He and his coworkers were beholden to an employer that pitted them against each other to heighten productivity at the expense of their physical and mental health. Working endless 10-hour shifts while having very little control over one’s own material conditions leads to drug abuse and immiseration. The experience is not unique. By creating representative, narrative-based lithographs and linocuts of these coworkers, Michael reclaims their lost dignity, time, and humanity.
