José offers exhibits at very reasonable rates to libraries, schools,
and student groups as well as to galleries and museums. He can work with
any exhibit space. He also has indoor and outdoor portable set-ups and
loves to bring the photographs to non-traditional locations such as fiestas,
rodeos, and lowrider shows. To inquire about having José's work at your
gallery or event, send
him an email.
Land of Opportunity: Latino Entrepreneurs of North Carolina
Funded by NALAC through the support of the Ford
Foundation and JP Morgan Chase, this exhibit includes not only
photographs but also oral histories about the lives of Hispanic
business owners, their trials and triumphs. This project was presented
as it evolved at Louisburg College in 2007, in the Durham City
Mayor’s office in early 2008, and at NC State in Fall, 2008. Along
with a multimedia kiosk with excerpts from the interviews, the
exhibit is part of Al Norte al Norte: Latino
Life in North Carolina.
It comes complete with panels of excerpts as well as information
on economic impacts of immigrant business.
César Chávez, Man of Courage
This is an exciting exhibit of 15 images of Chávez’s
life and work from the early 1970s until his death in 1993. José
was present for many of César’s actions. This exhibit includes
behind-the-scenes looks at farm worker protests and fasts, as well
as moving images of Chávez’s funeral. It refreshes our memories
of the impact of Chávez on all of the efforts continued today on
behalf of workers, and introduces young people and new immigrants
to César’s life and work.
Al Norte al Sur: Latino Life in the South
This work is the result of José's intense documentation
of Latinos living in the southern United States: dozens of images
of work, play, protest, and celebration. This exhibit represents
a more nuanced contribution to the current debates on immigration
and assimilation. The work, which changes and evolves every year as
José travels, has recently shown at dozens of colleges and universities.
"Latina" spans the four decades of José's
career, focusing solely on Hispanic women across the United States
and their everyday lives, loves, and relationships. This exhibit
allows the viewer to see parallels across the experiences of Latinas
of different ethnicities, of different ages, of immigrant backgrounds
or many generations native-born. It debuted at Peace College in
Raleigh, North Carolina, in 2008 and showed most recently at
Kings College in Fall 2013.
We enjoy creating exhibits with new and different
themes. Please let us know your needs.
