Quite often what is between the lines of an item is far more interesting then the item itself.
— Joseph Mitchel

When asked to contribute to the Where We Live photographic fellowship I set out to depict the impact policies like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA, 1994) have had on North Carolina's landscape and well being.

This series is in response to work Alex Harris made throughout North Carolina in 1971-72. My exploration began in Robeson County and expanded throughout the state, focusing on the relationship between trade related job loss and the female experience.
