Al Norte

“Al Norte al Norte: Latino Life in North Carolina," on loan from the North Carolina Museum of History, will be on display until November 4. The photographer is José Galvez , an accomplished photojournalist, who is himself Mexican-American. Galvez moved to North Carolina in 2004 to document the Latino population in our state. The resulting images, taken over 10 years, reveal the diversity and strength of the state’s growing Latino community.
