What Is Remembered, 1972  ©Mimi Plumb

MIMI PLUMB will speak about her earliest photographic projects, two distinctly California stories, created in the 1970s. What Is Remembered is a personal photo-based stream of consciousness of people and places representing her experience growing up in the suburb of  Walnut Creek, as strip malls and tract homes transformed the California landscape. In Pictures from the Valley, Plumb traveled up and down the agricultural valleys of California, photographing the young men living in chicken coops and under the sky, the children and adults working together in the fields, and the United Farm Workers Union organizers listening and talking with farmworkers about how elections in the fields might change their lives, during one of the most pivotal periods of organizing in the UFW’s history.
