About the Artist

Over the course of several years I photographed the life cycle of the Fiora and Noggle vineyards in Lake County.
I captured not only the harvest, but the winter dormancy, the pruning of the vines, the bud break, the appearance of tiny clusters of grapes which grow over the spring and summer into lush sugar-laden clusters ready for harvest.

Michael Noggle is a wine maker, so I captured the process of making his wine: the crush of the just-picked grapes, the tank fermentation, the press of the juice from the skin and seeds, the barrel aging, the bottling.

The photographs which have stayed with me most are of the harvest crews. I have chosen to title almost all of the portraits of these hard-working, beautiful people ‘untitled’. I do not know their names or from where they came. I do not know their immigration status. I do not know if they are still in this country, and if they are, I wonder if they are afraid in this time when so many immigrants, with or without documents, are deeply afraid.
