This is a photo expedition in Slab City, Niland, CA. It is about 20 miles from the US/Mexico border and is the largest free hobo-camp in the United States. Formed on a former military base, "The Slabs" has since grown to about 2,000 people. Eccentrics, Doctors, Drunks, Mentally Insane, and Fugitives live in Slab City and make it in to a (near) functioning place with a public library - only outdoor one in America - along with a golf course and music stage. Camping here for a few days, I met some amazing people and I present you with a selection from my findings. I have about 300 more photos to go through along with some medium-format Diana work which I will post on to Behance in the coming weeks.
Thank you -Andy
