Haitian Migrant Farmworkers

This photo document, created in 1984-1985, portrays the lives of Haitian migrant farmworkers. These are the “boat people” who fled Haiti in the 70’s and early 80’s. The photos concentrate on a few families throughout their yearly cycle.

I took these photographs while serving farmworkers on the Eastern Shore as an outreach worker.
