For over 30 years, Debbie Fleming Caffery has been documenting the Louisiana sugar cane harvest and its neighboring communities, as well as the plight of prostitutes in Mexican brothels, and more recently the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The documentary has us traveling with her through the mud of the sugar cane mills to the devastated homes of New Orlean's ninth ward to the South of France for the Les Rencontres Arles Photography Festival.

Unlike many photographers, Caffery does not shoot and run, she is genuinely interested in her subjects as people. Every often she stays longer than she had planned and helps them in any way she can. And though some may find her work dark, she always shoot in way to capture the humanity and leave us with hope.

A native of Louisiana, Caffery is most comfortable in the shadows, drawn to movements, patterns and deep tonality. Caffery s photography has garnered praise and has been included in exhibitions from the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. to the Photo Gallery International, Tokyo. Her work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of New York, the George Eastman House, and the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris. She was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2005.
