Hari Sreenivasan: This past week was May Day, when many countries pause to honor workers. This year, photographers from Agence France-Presse took a look at those around the world whose jobs have become increasingly rare thanks to advances in technology. The series is called "The Disappearing Jobs of Yesterday."
Eric Badarat: The idea was to show the jobs that have been part of our lives for decades and are slowly disappearing around the world.
Reporter: Eric Badarat is A.F.P.'s photo editor for North America.
Eric Badarat: The first idea originally was to find jobs that are disappearing because of the Internet revolution, because of the digital revolution. But then, there were so many ideas and so many nice portraits coming that we kind of broadened a little bit the idea and maybe just simply as disappearing jobs.
Reporter: A.F.P.'s photographers captured a wide range of jobs, from one of the last gas lamp lighters in London to a bookbinder in Bulgaria, a key maker on the streets of Beijing and a sewing machine repairman in Belgrade. The project even highlighted photographers themselves.
Eric Badarat: The, you know, the film photography, the street portrait photographers on touristy places and everything, iphone and selfies are killing those jobs. So, it was kind of an immediate reflex for photographers to talk about photographers.
Reporter: And in Rio, Brazil, there's at least one video rental store remaining.
Eric Badarat: It's true that the idea that DVD or video rental is totally disappearing. It was a big thing in the '90s or the '80s, and now totally gone. So, when you have a frame that is consistent everywhere in the world, you can show a moment in life everywhere the same way, and people, you know, will buy that a lot.
They are very interested.

埃里克·巴达拉特：最初的想法只是寻找那些因为互联网革命，数字革命而消失的工作 。但是，后来各种想法纷纷涌现，各种肖像精妙绝伦，于是我们稍稍扩大了一点想法，也许我们就可以做“消失的旧岗” 。
记者：A.F.P.的摄影师用镜头捕捉了各行各业的工作，从伦敦最后几位煤气灯掌灯人到保加利亚的一个装订工人，从北京一个配钥匙小贩到贝尔格莱德的一个缝纫机修理工 。这个项目甚至也对摄影师们自己进行了展现 。
埃里克·巴达拉特：你知道，对于胶片摄影，旅游景点摄影以及街头肖像摄影，iPhone和自拍工具也在取代那些工作 。所以，摄影师们会马上想到谈摄影师 。
埃里克·巴达拉特：DVD或视频租赁真的正在走向彻底消失 。上世纪90年代或80年代，DVD或视频租赁还很火，但现在已经完全销声匿迹了 。所以，如果在世界各地，你捕捉到的镜头都折射出了同一问题，你就可以以同样的方式去展现生活，你知道，人们会相当受用 。他们很感兴趣 。
