Good way to Celebrate César Chavez Day in Washington DC
The Mexican Cultural Institute is currently showing an exhibit of photographs by award-winning California photographer Rick Nahmias. Nahmias' photos document "the lives of one of America's largest invisible and disenfranchised populations" (farmworkers) and provides a powerful visual argument about the human cost of US agriculture. The photos are also exhibited in Nahmias' new book, The Migrant Project: Contemporary California Farm Workers, available from University of New Mexico Press.
