One thing is certain, you can't go back to the 70s (forty years ago) and take pictures of United Farm Workers President César E. Chávez and Crusade For Justice Founder Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales. That's what makes this photographic series so valuable. Below is a YouTube video sampler that you may find of interest. Check it out!


Select images from the Chicano Photographer Collection have been published in magazines, books and exhibited in numerous galleries and museums from coast to coast and internationally. The Imágenes Xicano Archive also includes photographs exploring the cultures and environments of Mexico and the mythical Aztlán.
