Currently Exhibition Display: “5th Annual Latino Life Photography Exhibition”


Curator: Mabel Jiménez
Artists: Group*

Acción Latina and El Tecolote annual Latino Life Photography Exhibit is the only ongoing photography event in the San Francisco Bay Area that is dedicated to highlighting the Latino experience. Latino Life was created and curated by El Tecolote’s photo editor Mabel Jiménez as a way of paying tribute to the talent and determination of the newspaper’s all-volunteer staff of photojournalists.

The theme for the event’s fifth anniversary is A Look Back. The carefully curated images include not only the cream of the crop from the past year, but also highlights from years past — “the best of the best since the beginning of this yearly tradition: vibrant, colorful and action-packed images that reflect both the beauty and struggle of being Latino.”

Exhibiting photographers:
Adelyna Tirado, Adriana Camarena, Alejandro Diaz, Alexis Terrazas, Angélica Ekeke ,Beth LaBerge, Bridgid Skiba, Clarivel Fong, Desiree Rios, Dhoryan Rizo, Drago Rentería, Edgar R Pacheco, Allison Ekevara Kitpowsong, Elisa Parrino Rensovich, Emma Marie Chiang, Erica Kiko Marquez, Gabriella Angotti-Jones, Higino Abrajano, Joel Angel Juárez, Mabel Jimenez-Hernandez, Manuel J Orbegozo, Natasha Dangond, Ramsey El-qare, Ryan Leibrich, Santiago Mejia, Shane Menez and Simon Thollot



And finally, this is Jiménez’s final show as photo editor for El Tecolote. We thank her for 10 years of great work with the newspaper and wish her all the best in the future.

Exhibit will run through Aug. 24, gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
