David Bacon's "Living Under Trees" now showing

David Bacon is a journalist who covers labor.

You're probably aware of him.

If you're not, yes, there are still a few labor reporters left.

C.I. noted that Bacon has a showing of his photography and since Bacon regularly covers labor and immigration rights, we want to all be sure to give him a shout out. His exhibit is at ARte Americas currently. That's 1630 Van Ness Avenue, Fresno, CA 93721. It is entitled "Living Under Trees" and the cost is $3 for the general audience, $2 for students and seniors.

The exhibit can be viewed Tuesdays through Saturdays through August 23rd (August 23rd is the last day, to be clear). The hours are eleven a.m. until five p.m. each day except Thursdays when the hours are eleven a.m. until eight p.m.

The photos take an in depth look at the lives of immigrant farm workers in California. Margaret Slaby's "Visual Eloquence: Photo exhibit at Arte Americas reveals a rich community among poor farmworkers" (The Fresno Bee) provides you with more information.
