A radical and compassionate view of African farm workers.
After a career as a successful magazine photographer, Jackie Nickerson quit the commercial world, bought a truck and spent two and a half years traveling through Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe. She photographed in rural areas, in smallholdings, on farms, and on tea and coffee plantations, making astonishing portraits of workers in their workplace. The result is a forging of a new visual language that creates a great sense of elegance, dignity and compassion in the face of daily toil.
