In the Fields

These pictures were taken in December of 2007. They capture work and life as a tomato picker in Immokalee as it is today: Looking for work before dawn, picking for 10 to 12 hours a day under Florida’s relentless sun, and returning after a long day to the one-room cinderblock apartments and broken-down trailers that are home during Immokalee’s 8-9 month-long season.
