Reflections of Change and A New Hope for Future Generations

California Museum of Photography

January 21 - April 15, 2006

Opening Reception

Saturday, January 21, 2006, 7pm - 9pm

Life Cycles: Reflections of Change and A New Hope for Future Generations examines the personal histories of immigrant and migrant farm worker families that settled in the colonias of Coachella Valley, California. With the support of a grant from the California Council For The Humanities, Jacalyn Lopez Garcia follows the progress of seven migrant families to create a photographic document of their involvement in changing the California social landscape. What this photo documentary reveals is an immigrant and migrant community that represents long-neglected sites for gathering stories about California's historic place as the land of opportunity. Specifically, this documentary focuses on personal stories of struggle and accomplishment for families, students and members of the growing Colonia communities located in the Southeastern deserts of California.
