New work for ENZO Olive Oil, documenting a record crop. This is my seventh harvest with Vincent Ricchiuti and the team, and the first time I’ve seen the harvester working at night. The crews worked around the clock late October through the first week in December, setting a record length for the harvest season—the trees were simply so full with fruit this year that it slowed the machines down.
