Por Mis Viages: From My Travels - A Latino Photographic Journey
All Day
For over 40 years, José Galvez has documented the everyday lives of Latinos around the United States through his photography. Born into the Mexican barrios of Tucson, Arizona, Galvez worked hard to move beyond what others had decided would be his future. Galvez majored in journalism at the University of Arizona and upon graduation, worked as a staff photographer at the Arizona Daily Star.

Galvez’ presentation of image and word entitled \"Por Mis Viages (From My Travels)\" will be on display in Swarthmore College’s McCabe Library Atrium from August 26 through September 26, 2014. Galvez creation of a powerful and unparalleled historical record of the Latino experience in America captures the beauty of Latino daily life and its struggle and triumph. On Wednesday, September 25 at 4:00 p.m. in the McCabe Library Atrium, Galvez will give a talk that will complement his stunning collection. A reception will follow upon the conclusion of Galvez’ talk.

Recipient of the first Pulitzer Prize ever awarded to a Mexican-American journalist, Galvez was the first Mexican-American photographer of the Los Angeles Times. Galvez served as senior photo editor for Americanos, a multi-media exhibition led by Edward James Olmos. In 2000, he published his first book, Vatos, a collaboration with esteemed poet Luis Alberto Urrea. In Beloved Land: An Oral History of Mexican Americans in Southern Arizona (2004), Galvez and oral historian Patricia Martin explored the lives of Mexican pioneer ranchers in the American Southwest.

Since 2004, Galvez and his family have resided in North Carolina in order to photograph Hispanic immigration in the South. In 2005, the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC) with support from the Ford Foundation and JP Morgan Chase awarded Galvez and his wife, Anne, partial funding to create the photography/oral history project “Land of Opportunity: Latino Entrepreneurs of North Carolina.”
