Somehow I missed, and just now discovered the series Homeland by Larry Sultan featured in his new book Katherine Avenue. This work is really incredible and it is a shame that Larry Sultan passed away still quite young and in the midst of this important body of work. Sultan hired Mexican and Central American day laborers looking for work to be actors in this series of landscapes made in Southern California. Straddling the line between documentary and fiction these images feel wholeheartedly sincere to me. Looking both inward to Sultan's own childhood and outward towards the pressing social issue of immigration Homeland is a rare example of successful "staged photography".
