José Galvez 

When: Oct. 21-29 2011
For four decades, photographer José Galvez has documented the experiences of Latinos in America, fashioning a Pulitzer Prize-winning legacy in stark black and white. Galvez’s oeuvre represents a commitment to the idea that artists should work in the service of their communities. According to his website, Galvez is currently promoting work that documents everything from the experience of Latinos in the Southern U.S. to the good works of civil rights activist César Chávez to the successes and failures of Latin-American entrepreneurs. Speaking about the Spanish tongue, Chávez once said, “Our language is the reflection of ourselves … an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers.” If a picture is worth a thousand words, Galvez’s images are all written in Spanish — capturing the shared experience of Latin America with its people’s own voices.
