Life and Death Along the Mississippi 2011 - A Conversation with Debbie Fleming Caffery | Photographers & Photo projects |

"Since I was a child I saw people working in the fields, in the sugar cane industry. My grandfather had a garden and raised pigeons, and every year during the harvest he took me riding to a sugar mill to see a friend that worked there. Another friend had a small country store and we would visit him as he made syrup out of the raw sugar. We would drive through the burning cane fields at sunset to go home."
