The Made Not Manufactured photo series may seem familiar at first. That is because portraits of craftsmen in their workspace has been done before, most recently by photographer Alessandro Venier. In this case, the series focuses on craftspeople based in the United Kingdom. By using traditional skills to make something still relevant today, the Made Not Manufactured series shows how "passionate [they are] about what they do and take care in everything they produce," as written on the photographer's website.

Shot by photographer Steve Kenward, the Made Not Manufactured photo series has a bit of a gritty vibe due to expert use of natural lighting as well as the focus on the workspace setting.
