Synopsis

Synopsis

The objects that populate our lives ride on the back of the truck drivers traveling between farms and ranches, refineries and bottling plants, warehouses and seaports. Consider a jar of mayonnaise made in an Illinois factory: the soybeans for the vegetable oil come from Iowa; Ohio corn is shipped to Pennsylvania where it is distilled into vinegar; Minnesota beets get refined to sugar; salt is mined in Texas; lemons are picked in Florida; chickens lay eggs in Georgia; plastic for the containers is processed in China. Drawing on her many years experience writing for an industry trade publication, Mary Richardson and an ensemble of photographers document the stories of these truckers’ lives.

Covering major trucking routes throughout North America and giving the men and women who drive them a platform from which to describe the highs and lows of life on the road, Truckers taps into the raw and ravaged diesel-fueled lifeblood of global consumer culture.
