Capturing the “campesinos” of the Central Valley


In the spirit of cross-promotion, I just wanted to alert people that journalism student Jeremy Rue has been named the recipient of UC Berkeley’s annual Dorothea Lange photography fellowship, which happens to be administered by my office. Why is this Ethicurean related? Well, Rue has been recognized for his stunning color photos of the often-invisible people at the root of our lengthy food chain: the farm workers in the fields, orchards, and labor camps of California’s Central Valley.

The Dorothea Lange website has more about Rue, whose grandparents were briefly migrant fieldworkers, as well as a link to a slideshow of his winning images.
