In 1973 I photographed a community of abandoned migrant farm worker's shacks near my home. After becoming a Librarian I searched the Library of Congress American Memory Collection and discovered a series of Dorothea Lange photographs, taken in 1936, of the American River Camp, one of the places where migrant farm workers lived while in Sacramento County. These photographs have been combined with quotations and narrative from the Library of Congress and a California Document entitled Migratory Labor in California.
My photographs taken with an Argus C3 using Kodak Tri-X film.
