Chicano Photographer to Talk About His Work from 1970 to the Present at SJSU


Texas documentary photographer Jesús Manuel Mena Garza will present an hour-long photo show and lecture, A Chicano Photographer’s Journey: 1970 to the Present, on Sept. 25 at 3 pm at San José State University.

Wichita Falls, TX, August 17, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Texas documentary photographer Jesús Manuel Mena Garza will present an hour-long photo show and lecture, A Chicano Photographer’s Journey: 1970 to the Present, on Sept. 25 at 3 pm at San José State University. The event is free and open to the public at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, Room 225/229.

Midwestern State University Professor Dr. Ann Marie Leimer said, “This new presentation illuminates why Garza pursued his role of critical observer. He explains the various influences in his artistic life and details the process that helped him evolve into a prominent documentary photographer.” Garza’s new work is quite diverse – from intimate portraits of Chicana and Chicano academics to issues of abandonment and loss in Texoma.

Professor Leimer adds, “During the past decades, Garza has extensively published and exhibited several documentary photographic series. His Chicano Photographer series explores important aspects of the American experience, historic events and cultural practices often marginalized by the dominant culture.”

The presentation occurs in conjunction with Garza’s current exhibition at the library. A panel discussion on the 40th Anniversary of El Centro Cultural de la Gente (Garza was a member) will take place in the same room from 6 to 7:30 pm. There will be a reception following in the Cultural Heritage Center (Fifth Floor).
