Photojournalist captures a Fresno family's journey out of poverty

Ryan Christopher Jones
A few days before Christmas in 2016, Vinson Fernandez worked at home while his son Tayvin lounged alongside him.

Photojournalist Ryan Christopher Jones spent five years documenting one Fresno family’s transition from poverty into the middle class. His images were recently published in “The Atlantic.” Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock spoke to Jones about how the project evolved from its initial concept of exploring the growing tech scene in Fresno, into an examination of social mobility.

Kathleen Schock is the host of Valley Edition. In the show, Kathleen and the Valley Public Radio news team explore issues that matter to the residents of Central California through engaging conversations and in-depth reporting.
