Fruit of the Orchard is the story of how a toxic waste facility affected the citizens of Winona, Texas. Soon after the plant opened nearby, residents started noticing huge orange clouds rising from the facility and an increase in rates of cancer and birth defects in both humans and animals. One resident, Phyllis Glazer, was outraged and organized a grass-roots movement to publicize the problems in Winona, which resulted in the plants closure in 1998. During this time, Tammy Cromer-Campbell was on the scene documenting Winonas story. Using a plastic Holga camera, she created hauntingly distorted images, fifty of which are included in this volume, that are both works of art and testaments to the damage inflicted on the people of a small Texas town by one companys greed.
