Entry Description: Hodder is the term used for the men who work on the plant floor in an abattoir. These pictures were shot during a day I spent in Somerset with a group of hodders who typically are all born and raised in the locality and as here usually end up working for life in the family business. What impressed me were the cold and monotonous conditions these men work under, and yet despite this, their endless sense of humour and pride in their work behind the closed doors of the chiller.
