The Anonymous Farm Worker by El Mac

We thought what better day than Labor Day to take a closer look of El Mac‘s “Anonymous Farm Worker” done in Coachella Valley last year, organized by The Date Farmers.

El Mac:

It’s not intended to represent any one specific person, but rather many people, especially the “anonymous farm worker”. Farm workers in this country have been marginalized despite producing the very food we all need for survival. The Coachella valley is an important region for farming, and has been the setting for many of the struggles by the UFW to to improve workers’ rights since the 60s..and you can feel this history there.
