About the Author 
  
NANCY RICA SCHIFF is a published and exhibited photographer based in New York City. This book has been her labor of love for the past 12 years. She went to great lengths to photograph her subjects for ODD JOBS, including climbing Mount Rushmore and standing atop George Washington to shoot a "crack filler" working on Thomas Jefferson's nose.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
Odd Jobs Portraits of Unusual Occupations by Nancy Rica Schiff Who blows the bugle at the Kentucky Derby? Who dusts the dinosaur bones at the Smithsonian? Who sniffs dog breath for a living? Who measures the breasts of real models? ODD JOBS introduces you to the real people who perform these truly peculiar jobs. In 65 intimate portraits, photo essayist Nancy Rica Schiff captures the personalities and occupations of these oddball professionals, providing a short profile of each. A 20-year photography veteran, Schiff has spent the better half of that time discovering the behind-the-scenes people who do what others can't (or won't) do. No one can say that America isn't the home of the free, the brave, and the quirky, who will do almost anything to make an honest buck.
