This project explores dynamics and contradictions in the lives of African immigrants living and working in the plastic sea of greenhouses in Almeria, Spain. While looking for opportunities to help them achieve the dreams that led them to Europe, social, economic and legal barriers often force them to depend on the greenhouse industry for longer than they expect. Although they continue to believe in moving on, their lives slowly become more rooted as time passes.
I’ll be posting the book with more details soon…
