Acción Latina’s third annual “Latina/o Life in the Bay” photo exhibition featured a collection of the best work produced by El Tecolote volunteer photographers. The exhibition was created to capture the complexity and variety of the Latino/a experience in the Bay Area, with visual content depicting demonstrations for social justice, sports, arts and culture events, portraiture, spirituality, family life and more—all through a journalistic lens.
