Tracy Hills
Tracy Hills, California
August 2021–Present

Tracy Hills is a new master-planned community in the San Joaquin Valley, two hours east of San Francisco, California.

On Tracy Hills’ official website, one can read about “endless amenities,” “room for everything,” “countless possibilities to take home further” among other cathphrases that suggest unboundedness.

With climate change, the scorching drought that plagues the American Southwest, or the fact that such remote communities heavily rely on cheap fossil fuels for their residents to commute to distant city hubs, I photographed a place that seems to examplify and magnify short-sighted fast-buck real estate opportunities while probing how long these cheap stuccoed houses will stand.
