The mills constructed in the 19th and early 20th century created a need for workers that fueled waves of immigration of that period. Today these original mill towns are home to a new wave of immigrants. The average cost for one year at the Seven Sisters is over $50,000.00. Average per capita income for the seven mill towns is $16,000.00. Although the photographs are of the decaying structures of the mill buildings, this is a story of immigrants who continue to face poverty, ethnic and racial discrimination, sub-standard housing and education.
Seven Sisters is available as indivdual archival photographic prints or in its entirety as an artist journal.
