Along the central coast of California, hugging the Pacific ocean, are the acres of farmlands and orchards that produce fully one third of the fruits, vegetables and nuts consumed each year across America. The fertile ground and the lush arrays of vegetable seedlings engage the passing attention of travelers who drive between northern and southern California. Hiding in plain sight are mounting signs of trouble: dwindling and tainted water supplies, the occasional farm worker amidst the automated factory-like machines, and unpredictable weather that threaten production year after year.  The future of the area and our fresh food supply may well lie between the rows, amongst the hoop houses, powerlines, scarecrows and minimally maintained equipment framing the future of America.  A few images, printed on Japanese Kozo paper and infused in wax, reflect a region and an industry in flux.
