About this print

"I was to spend six years and thousands of miles looking to see how many other places there were in America like my home region, the Central Valley in California. The precedents were in my own place: too many people living in poverty, and not enough recognition that this was happening here and everywhere across the country. This image helped set the stage for a long journey, looking for those connections.
