Three Original Photographs by a Three-Time Pulitizer Prize Winner

Photographs of Jamaican Migrant Workers in Florida

Notes: The vintage gelatin silver prints of Jamaican migrant workers in Florida taken by a three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer. The images show workers preparing to return home with large boxes of items purchased stateside and their personal belongings. One man, named Mervin McWon, carries two boom-box-style radios; another photograph depicts two men carrying a heavy cardboard box; the third image shows a parking lot filled with waiting farmworkers and a sea of boxes.

The photographer, Michel duCille (1956–2014), was born in Jamaica and immigrated to the United States as a teenager. He joined the staff of the Miami Herald, where he won the first two of his Pulitzers. He won a third as a photographer for the Washington Post. He died in 2014 while on assignment in Liberia.

Three vintage gelatin silver prints, two 8 by 10s and one 8-1/2 by 11.
