The exhibition features over fifty contemporary photographs chronicling the lives of contemporary migrant farm workers. Photojournalist David Bacon’s evocative, powerful photographs alongside moving oral narratives from migrant farm workers gives viewers a reality check on the food they eat and the lives of the people who harvest it. The exhibition is fully translated into both English and Spanish. In the Fields of the North / En los Campos del Norte features the work of David Bacon; is produced in partnership with the California Rural Legal Assistance, the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations, and History San Jose; and is traveled by Exhibit Envoy.
