Documentary by Photographer Francisco J. Dominguez Jr.
Sacramento-based Francisco Dominguez is a photographer and art educator and has documented native people in political struggle for the last 20 years. He has documented the lives of immigrating and displaced people and were directly affected by US economic trade policies. Francisco has used his work to bring attention to the injustices on the Mexico/US border and in states such Arizona.
The infrared-sensitive film he uses creates an ethereal atmosphere, a timeless reflection of the cultural legacy of his subjects. Dominguez’s photography gives an unexpected twist to the common assumption that documentary photographs reveal “objective” portrayals. Dominguez has participated in many exhibitions in California.
Sponsored by the Watsonville Brown Berets and Migra Watch.
