Facing Change Documenting America – Debbie Fleming Caffery

It has been some time since I updated my blog. This might be the longest time between posts since I revamped my site in 2008. There is a good excuse, I have been insanely busy shooting and editing, but the good news is I will be able to post some really cool videos in the upcoming weeks and into the New Year. Today I got two posts for you guys…

Earlier this year Leica announced their collaboration with Facing Change: Documenting America (FCDA), a non-profit collective of prominent photographers and writers dedicated to exploring the United States during one of the most enduring times in the nation’s history. I was recently asked by Leica to document the photo journalists who make up the Facing Change roster.

For the first video we traveled to Breaux Bridge, Louisiana to meet with Debbie Fleming Caffery who has been documenting the destruction and devastation caused by the modernization of farming forcing out the formerly poorly paid farmhands and, more recently, the river flooding on to farmlands.
