MEXICANS ARE THE NEW NEGROES
I conceptualized this series while living in LA driving past Home Depot witnessing men who would solicit their services for money. Most of the men are undocumented and live off the work when they can get it. It quickly dawned on me that most of the work the Mexicans were doing was once the domain of the Negro. I began to research images of slavery, Jim Crow era and pre and post civil rights to make a visual correlation of the scenes I witnessed.
