Photographs by Bruce Haley
Foreword by Kirsten Rian
The photographs in Home Fires, Volume I: The Past were taken during the height of a crippling drought in the state of California. Bruce Haley, known for his hard-hitting war and documentary work, turns his camera homeward, to the agriculture-rich San Joaquin Valley where he spent his childhood. The resulting images, haunting and melancholy, play out against the larger framework of contentious water politics and land use issues. The poet and writer Kirsten Rian provides the accompanying text.
Bruce Haley is the recipient of the Robert Capa Gold Medal and his clients include Time, Life, US News and World Report, The London Sunday Times Magazine, Stern, Paris Match, GEO, Aperture, Esquire, Georgia-Pacific, and the Chevron Corporation
