Since 1967, Jesús Manuel Mena Garza has made it his mission to photograph the Chicana and Chicano (Chicanx) experience. He has focused his lens on communities as diverse as Los Angeles, San Antonio, Tucson, Albuquerque, San José and now Fort Worth. A new and exciting project that Garza has undertaken is photographing Chicana and Chicano artists and academics.
The photographer understands that the many accomplishments of Latinos are often dismissed by the dominant culture. So for more than 55 years (he bought his first camera at age 11) he has taken on the role of outside observer and chronicler of Chicanx history. Feel free to call (682) 365-8702 with any questions about his past, current and upcoming photography and video projects.
