About José Galvez:
For over 40 years, José Galvez has used black and white film to create a powerful and unparalleled historical record of the Latino experience in America. His compelling work, done with respect, pride and no pretense, captures the beauty of daily life. For José, photographing the lives of Latinos is not a one-time project or “current passion” but a lifelong commitment. As an artist, he photographs nothing else. His personal history, love of family, and cultural knowledge enable him to pursue his work with a reverent understanding of the stories behind the images.
