"I photographed Erik, a U.S. Coast Guard flight mechanic based out of USCG Air Station Los Angeles, as part of a personal project," says Strauss. "Whenever my commissioned shoots bring me to another city, or just into contact with a person with an interesting career, I line up a shoot for my project titled 'People at Work.' The workplace, in this case, the cabin of an MH-65 Dolphin."
