I started this project during summer and fall of 2015. The idea was simple. Photograph grape harvest workers the moment after they finish up a days work in the vineyards. I wanted their faces to be the narrative. Just faces after work.
I’ll be back in the vineyards again this year to keep finding faces to tell more of the story and eventually making their way into a book.
I’m showing 17 large prints from the HARVESTER project at Christie Marks Fine Art Gallery in Santa Rosa, California from August 5 to September 17. For more info: http://christiemarksfineart.com/event/79705/harvester-a-photo-series-by-erik-castro
