Working Coachella:
Images of the farmworker community of the Coachella Valley

Photographs by David Bacon

“Working Coachella” makes visible the people who labor in the Coachella Valley’s fields, demonstrating who is responsible for producing the food we all eat.  But while the labor of Coachella farmworkers is essential, the rural poverty endemic in their communities is largely invisible. This project shows the dignity of their work, in images whose impact comes from their detail and intimacy. They also clearly demonstrate the need for social justice to deal with the problems of these rural communities.
