DESCRIPTION

Description: In the 1960s and 1970s, a complex set of inter-related cultural and political events occurred in the United States. Great strides were made in numerous liberation and social justice movements. Important conflicts occurred, which resulted in some positive changes to American society.

As the socio-political pendulum swings in our current time away from the direction of ultra-conservatism, we invite you to celebrate images from the last period of the 20th Century, which served as a key catalyst for struggles that continue to this day.

Featuring the fine art photography of:

Oscar Castillo: Celebrated Southern California freelance photographer. Con Safos photographer in the 1970s.

Steve Fine: Photographer, writer, Los Angeles area peace activist.

Jesus Manuel Mena Garza: Award winning fine art, documentary, and commercial photographer.

Cidne Hart: Artist. Former photographer for the Liberation News Service.

George Rodriguez: Legendary Hollywood and social justice photographer.
