When looking for a woman working in a career beginning with the letter 'N' I had many opportunities to photograph a nurse, a professional nanny and even a local newscaster.  Knowing that photographing a female neurosurgeon in 1972 was out of the question and having a personal love for plants, I decided to hunt down one of my favorite people in New York; a female nursery manager. I recall when photographing Linda, she shared how happy and content she was in this job and hoped to make it a life long career. Nursery managers today make about $14 an hour and men slightly outnumber their female counterparts in this profession, making up a slight majority at 54 percent. Seemed like a fun job at the time.
