Leonard Nadel was a successful magazine photographer. He photographed for the Los Angeles City Housing Authority and his work was published in numerous magazines. In 1956, Nadel used his photographs to expose employer violations endured by many braceros.
Summary:
Photographs taken by Nadel in California, Texas, and Mexico, documenting the Bracero Program for the Ford Foundation's Fund for the Republic, in support of a report entitled "Strangers in Our Fields" by Dr. Ernesto Galarza.
