Galvez’s personal story is as compelling as his photographs. Born into the Mexican barrios of Tucson, Galvez had a determination to work hard and move beyond what others had decided would be his future. And yet, he has never forgotten his roots.

Beyond the Usual PowerPoint Lecture

Over many years Galvez has delighted audiences with his stories of struggle and triumph. His photographic/lecture presentations combine history, culture, and image. "Shine" looks back at José's  beginnings as a shoeshine boy who wandered into the newsroom, and "Chicano," explores the Chicano movement of the 60s and 70s and its influence on José's identity and life's work. 

Presentations can be customized for any audience.
