Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.
Photographs of California farmland taken 2013-2014. Running through the images - finding channels or spreading out across a flat expanse - are brief texts. These are taken from The Land of Little Rain, Mary Austin's seminal book on California and its water-challenged landscape first published in 1903.
