Exposición fotográfica Trabajamos en los Campos del Norte

Los trabajadores agrícolas están entre los residentes más pobres de California. Un tercero hace menos que el salario mínimo. En San Diego, Santa Rosa, Coachella y Salinas, los migrantes duermen en cabañas o tiendas de campaña bajo los árboles, o acuden a una sala en parques de caravanas. La falta de vivienda y la pobreza rural son generalizadas, pero invisibles. En Los Campos del Norte los hace visibles, demostrando quién es responsable de producir los alimentos que comemos y demostrando que los problemas de justicia social son sufragados en común por las comunidades tanto urbanas como rurales
El premiado fotoperiodista David Bacon exhibición de fotos se muestra en la actualidad.

Las imágenes de los trabajadores agrícolas de Bacon son una sorprendente revelación del trabajo necesario para poner comida en las mesas de los Estados Unidos. Las imágenes en blanco y negro proporcionan una vislumbre en las vidas de los que trabajan en los campos y captan la lucha y la esperanza de su existencia.

Comenzó el 11 de enero y terminará el 11 de abril de 2017. En el Riverside Art Museum, 3425 Misison Inn Ave., Riverside, California.
