In the Fields of the North
is a series of evocative photographs accompanied by moving oral narratives – in English and Spanish – that take visitors into the contemporary world of migrant farm workers.
Photographer and journalist David Bacon has spent over three decades documenting the lives of migrant workers and organizing with United Farm Workers. The exhibit is traveling with migrant workers up the West Coast as the fruit and harvest season moves from the Mexican border north to Washington state.
In the Fields of the North / En los campos del norte features the works of David Bacon, is produced in partnership with the California Rural Legal Assistance and the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations, and is traveled by Exhibit Envoy.
