Tracy Hills
Tracy Hills, California
August 2021–June 2024

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

Browsing the official website, one can read about “endless amenities,” “room for everything,” “countless possibilities to take home further” among other slogans that suggest unboundedness.

With climate change, the scorching drought that has plagued the American Southwest, or the fact that such remote communities rely on affordable fossil fuels for their residents to commute to distant city hubs, I photographed an anachronistic place that magnifies short-sighted, fast-buck real estate opportunities while probing how long these cheap stuccoed houses will stand.
