Statement from Larry Towell on the back of print “Lambton County, Ontario. Canada. 1990”

“I began photographing Mennonite migrant workers as they arrived from Mexico to plant and harvest the fruit and vegetables of Ontario. It was the first summer in Ontario for Nancy Klassen, who is wearing a traditional headscarf and standing on a tomato harvesterwith her cousins as it rounds the end of a cornfield. The other girls, who’s come from the same insular colony in Mexico, had lived in Canada for several years and understood the struggle of language and culture she would have to surmount. They spent the summer helping her build her confidence in a new and modern world.”
