A Fresh Perspective

Congratulations to Sophomore Joe Jimenez for her photograph receiving the Museum Photography Council award during the 2017 Fine Arts Creativity Awards at the Palm Springs Art Museum!

"From the perspective of a farmer's daughter. These are my people and this is their struggle. For most, this is all they have ever known, it's a way of life. A harsh way to live, everyday requires hours of back-breaking work under the heat of the Coachella sun. My people put their blood, sweat and tears into those fields, and although they contribute to bring a large quantity of food to our society, they are left with nothing for themselves. At the end of the day they are still struggling, yet they wake up before dawn to do it all over again. There's a saying on the field, “lucha sin fin”, which translates to “struggle without an end”. I want the public to simply grasp the idea of the hard work put into their meals because of my people."
