Harvey Richards’ first photographic efforts in the late 1950’s and 1960’s centered on California farm workers. His films were made from the worker’s and union’s point of view, designed to help the organizing drives of the United Packing House Workers Unioni (Factory Farms), the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee, AFL-CIO (The HarvestersUno Veintecinco) and the United Farm Workers (The Land Is Rich). He was not officially sponsored by the unions, doing all of the filming, editing and producing independently.  Once complete, the films were given to organizers for their use.
