Acción Latina’s Juan R. Fuentes Gallery
2958 24th Street, San Francisco

Acción Latina and El Tecolote newspaper are pleased to announce the 4th Annual Latino Life, a photo exhibit showcasing the diversity of the Latino experience via the lens of some very talented up-and-coming photojournalists who have recently shot for El Tecolote.

Conceived, created and curated by El Tecolote’s photo editor Mabel Jimenez, with the intention of recognizing all of the talented photographers who volunteer their time for our newspaper, this is the only ongoing photography event in the San Francisco Bay Area dedicated to showing the Latino experience.

Given the recent election results and the subsequent backlash against communities of color, this year’s exhibit takes on an added significance. We hope to convey through our images a message of resistance against the forces that seek to oppress our existence and negate our contributions to this country. And to portray the harsh realities our community deals with —homelessness, deportations, police brutality— and how we rise above it. We want our images to say, “We’re still here, and we aren’t going anywhere.” “Aquí estamos, y no nos vamos.”
