Their photos reveal the moments that they live everyday, highlighting the struggle for recognition by migrant farmworkers, for example, the power of transformation through food in rural communities plagued with crime activity, economic disparity, and health issues, to celebratory moments through the lens of first-generation refugee high schoolers from the Karen community of Burma. Among the artists who will be at tonight's reception are youth from Eastern North Carolina who couldn't make it to the opening reception due the Hurricane Matthew aftermath. The photographs are also the colorful representations we often see in food media, many of them macro-focused on gorgeous farm landscapes and shared, sprawling meals.
