For more than four decades I have devoted myself to photographing and documenting the poorest and most segregated communities in urban America. I feel that a people’s past, including their accomplishments, aspirations and failures, are reflected less in the faces of those who live in these neighborhoods than in the material, built environment in which they move and modify over time. Photography for me is a tool for continuously asking questions, for understanding the spirit of a place, and, as I have discovered over time, for loving and appreciating cities.

The assignments that I like best are the intimate ones, the ones that touch your emotions and reveal people’s humanity.

Fruits of Wrath, Edgard Garrido

Fruit pickers in the Baja California peninsula of Mexico, railing against a life of grinding poverty, have blocked roads, staged marches and held meetings with lawmakers since March as frustration over working conditions boiled over. One labourer in San Quintin, south of the border town of Tijuana, sleeps with his family on the bare earth in a tiny wooden shack on scrubland. He said after picking between 242 lbs and 440 lbs of strawberries a day he earns from $56 to $79 a week. Strawberries fetched $2.36 a pound on average in the United States in 2013

Joyce Silberstein (°1989, Chile, Germany) creates mixed media works like: photography, graphic design, web design, direction in creative projects, individual and collective expositions and conceptual artworks. Starting with observations around her, a deep investigation and the best organization via retakes and variations, she realized that expression and creation comes in to society style life. This multidisciplinary artist plays with the idea of mixing the power of different tools that design has given: at first she study Desing with mention in Graphic Design in Santiago do Chile and all so has an MA of Photography and Design at ELISAVA, University Pompeu du Fabra, Barcelona, Spain. As well as start working since 19 years old as a graphic designer and photographer in different challenges constructs the reason of thinking that image can construct the scenery of peoples life in a good and creativity way.

Creo que lo más valioso de nuestra sociedad a menudo se deja de lado. Entiendo que se tiren zapatos o ropa vieja, pero el alcance de lo que abandona América: edificios, fábricas inmensas, barrios enteros, me hizo plantear el porqué a través de imágenes. En vez de buscar una explicación lógica, he intentado vivir la decadencia fotografiándola y hablando con los habitantes de los barrios afectados. Mis proyectos son una clasificación o una especie de taxonomía.

Yo soy un fotógrafo distinto a los otros, a mí me dan la medalla por la especialidad de humanidades, porque mi responsabilidad es fotografiar la historia de los barrios arruinados, que se están cayendo a pedazos, donde la inversión es cero y cuyos habitantes los están abandonando.
