13-Month Crop: One Year in the Life of a Piedmont Virginia Tobacco Farm, 2000-2001 1.5 Linear Feet — 38 photographic prints
Series contains 38 11x14 inch black-and-white (gelatin silver) prints by photographer Jesse Pyrant Andrews, featured in a solo exhibit at Duke University's Perkins Library in 2002. Andrews spent one tobacco farming season, April 2000 to April 2001, using a traditional film camera to document the lives of the people who cultivate tobacco on the Moore family farm in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Images portray the white farm family members as well as seasonal migrant farmworkers. Tobacco farming is so labor-intensive that it is often called a "13-month crop."
