Robert Dawson

The Great Central Valley: California's Heartland- A Photographic Project
by Stephen Johnson
Publisher's Description
Robert Dawson and Stephen Johnson have created an evocative body of photographs focusing on California's economic hub, the Central Valley. This fertile plain, nearly the size of England, is the richest farming region in the world, producing more than 25 percent of the nation's food. Its people are "as rich as its resources." Yet today the valley is imperiled by agricultural and population expansion, and environmental threats. Dawson and Johnson's images, complemented by Gerald Haslam's text, "bring home to us . . . that it is up to us to safeguard the future of this endangered valley, to conserve its extraordinary human and natural wealth, and to try to reclaim some of its lost grandeur."--the publisher.
