Exhibit: The Migrant Project

 

The migrant project in particular fascinated me. I found the images of the farmers to be very engaging.

 

Black and white pictures of California migrant farm workers. Pictures depict issues from family life, immigration, health care… 

 

“The black and white photographs, paired with text describing migrant workers’ lives, often deal with issues of pesticides, as when workers are told to eat heavily sprayed, unwashed grapes to test whether they are ripe for picking, or when workers’ children play in irrigation ditches filled with pesticide-saturated runoff. “
