“We don’t like to look at children who are dying. It’s against the proper order of life. But to be told they are dying or suffering horribly because WE haven’t protected them is intolerable. Tammy Cromer-Campbell seduces us into looking at these deformed feet, mottled skins, shielded faces, and accusatory eyes by also slipping in pictures of laughter, productivity, and activism. If we act, there is hope. It is Cromer-Campbell’s own hope that infuses the pictures and gives them lasting value. They are a rich and fitting testament and call to us to care.” 
—Anne Wilkes Tucker 
Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator 
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

“A powerful, intelligent, and ultimately moving body of work.” 
—Keith Carter 
Walles Chair of Art, Lamar University

“In the finest tradition of the best documentary photographers, Tammy Cromer-Campbell has fashioned a moving portrait of the (alleged) lives destroyed in a small East Texas town by industrial pollution, and in so doing has helped remake the lives of some of its poorest citizens.” 
—Hank O’Neal 
photographer, author, jazz producer

“Fruit of the Orchard marks an important contribution to contemporary conversations about the relationship between race, class, and the environment. The photographs and accompanying text are a powerful example of environmental rhetoric, one that highlights the importance of visual imagery and cultural activism in the struggle for environmental justice.”

“Only when our hearts are moved can there be real change. That’s why Tammy Cromer-Campbell’s photographs are so important. Now that I have met the people of Winona, I cannot forget them. I will know that my life is connected to theirs, for the toxic waste that went into their bodies is a result of the collective lives of the rest of us.” 
— Aileen Mioko Smith 
activist and co-author of 
W. Eugene Smith’s Minimata

“Cromer-Campbell’s insightful photographs, while possessed of both a compelling beauty and a telling narrative, above all also give us fair warning: what happened here can happen anywhere, anytime, to any and all of us who must share the earth.”
