Salinas Valley, Monterrey Ca.,
I've always been fascinated by the incredible productivity of this region in Northern California.
When recently cruising the back roads between the fields I decided to produce a series around these amazing 'AG' workers and their lifestyle.
'Young Lettuce' is the 1st. These fellows are hard at it at 7:00 am. Long before the before the coastal overcast has burned away.
