Photographer's Note

There are 11 million of them in the US. They come like shadows across the parched land, braving intense heat in the summer or frigid cold of winters, snake bites, and drug smugglers. They come across several borders, fleeing desperate poverty, grinding despots, leaving their children and their parents, to work, to send some money home so their children can stand on their feet. They live in cramped rooms in skeletal motor-homes. They walk to work, the lucky ones ride rusting bicycles through gleaming motor ways. They pick our tomatoes and strawberries, back bowed in penitence, they launder the yellow stain off our one night stands--they are 'in the shadows'.

We will deport them. We will keep our last night's beer bottles, our soiled sheets.
