A series of photographs from New York State apple orchards.
The workers who pick the apples come from Jamaica and Mexico. Each year they are selected for this work in their home countries and this job is desirable. The ones who are chosen have heavy hands with soft palms, so as to be less likely to damage the fruit as it is picked.
They stay during picking season on the farmers land in trailers, and return to their homes after the harvest.
Photographs were made on two farms, in Columbia and Duchess counties, New York.
