 Feature for LeMonde Magazine FR about “Snowbirds” in Arizona. Quartzsite Arizona usually has an official population of around 3,000, but in January, the city can accommodate more than 150,000 people and between October and March, it sees nearly a million and a half of residents that are more or less temporary. The city and its dozens of BLM campsites and the desert around form a temporary community. The thousands of motorhomes, vans, busses and caravans of the so-called "snowbirds,” who are often retired and escaping harsh winters in the mid-west and Canada. An added benefit of traveling south for winter is that these often retired snowbirds can head a couple hours further south to Los Algodones Mexico, where they can receive dental, medical procedures and pharmaceuticals at a fraction of U.S. prices

 The California Future Farmers of America is trying to bring in more Latino students into the program, with hopes developing an interest in careers in agriculture, as half of all farm laborers and operators in the U.S. are Hispanic. I photographed the 2015 California FFA state championship at Fresno State University for Bright, Medium's education platform.

I was sent to cover the media frenzy of the “American Sniper Trial,” in the small cowboy town of Stephenville Texas, located 90 miles West of Dallas. Because of the best selling book and movie, the trial has brought a flood of media to this small town located in the county where American Sniper Chris Kyle and his best friend Chad Littlefield were murdered by Eddie Ray Routh. Kyle and Littlefield were gunned down at the shooting range at the Rough Creek Lodge where they had taken South to shoot.
