This Camera Fights Fascism: The Photographs of David Bacon and Francisco Dominguez

de Saisset Museum, Santa Clara University July 29, 2011 - February 5, 2012

David Bacon and Francisco Dominguez have both followed in the tradition of Depression-era photographers such as Dorothea Lange, focusing their cameras on struggle, dissent, immigrants, and workers. Their photographs speak to the global character of contemporary migration. Like the so-called Okies of the Depression, many of today's migrants have been displaced by environmental degradation and wider economic forces.
