Yvonne Muller: Migrant Workers

image/jpeg icon


This past year, Yvonne Muller photographed migrant workers at the Farm Workers Community Center in Goshen, New York. She has interspersed her images of them with her painterly images of fields near the Center, where the workers labor.

Her fifty page booklet, Migrant Workers; a Character Study, is available for $30 at http:// yvonnemuller.magcloud.com

“This past year, during the time I spent photographing them, I’ve gained an appreciation of the role migrant farm workers play in feeding this community and the world and, in particular, I’ve gained an appreciation of their value as individuals”, she said. These studies are intended to show the workers as the gentle, moral people I discovered, and to offer a view of the Black Dirt area of Orange County, New York, where they work.”
