Inspired by Martha Stewart




D
own east there's a little town called Kinston. Nestled among the cotton fields is a thriving manufacturing company by the name of MasterBrand Cabinets Inc. where they make beautiful cabinetry for homes and offices worldwide AND they do it right here in the USA! Their home office is located in Jasper, Indiana. They have more than 8,000 associates at manufacturing facilities and service centers throughout the United States and Canada. MasterBrand also manufactures a line of cabinets for Martha Stewart Living Kitchens.

I was invited by MasterBrand to photograph Martha Stewart while she visited the facility in Kinston. I must say I was inspired. Inspired by the courtesy and professionalism from all the folks at MB, from top level management to the brilliant man with a contagious smile that cleans and maintains the facility. I was inspired by Martha Stewart... here's a person that has so much--as far as material things. She could be sitting on an island somewhere with someone bringing her margaritas and chips, yet she is driven to keep going--arguably more so than anyone else in the entire building. You have to wonder what makes a person like that go. I don't know the answer, but this is what I believe about her; she loves her work. She also seems to take a great deal of pride and responsibility in knowing that she is providing jobs and a future for so many people. I looked around and there were over 300 people in just one location making a living because she decides to continue working. Martha Stewart was happy and so was everyone else.
