This Camera Fights Fascism:
The Photographs of David Bacon and Francisco Dominguez
de Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University
Santa Clara, CA
July 29 – December 4, 2011 and January 14 – February 5, 2012
Tuesday – Sunday 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Opening Thursday, September 22nd, 6PM
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.
The title of this exhibition refers to a sign that 1930s folk musician Woody Guthrie often had on his guitar, “This Machine Kills Fascists.” These two photographers build a powerful body of visual evidence of the continuing struggle of workers, migrants, and poor people to survive. In this exhibition the photographers responded to images by Dorothea Lange and selected photographs from their own work that draw close connections between the 1930s and today.
David Bacon is a photojournalist who has documented the movements of farm workers, social protest from Iraq and Mexico to the U.S., and the migration of people. He is the author of several books, and many of the images in this show are from Communities Without Borders, Images and Words from the World of Migration.
Francisco Dominguez is a photographer and printmaker. His parents both were farm workers. He documents the struggles of indigenous, immigrant, and poor people in black and white photography.

Brought to you by De-Bug, Glassclops is set out to capture the medium that we love. As photographers, we realized that with the great downsizing of film products, we are at risk of losing a great art form. We do this magazine as a response to this pattern, and out of love. Our goal is to keep film alive, we feel the only way that we can do this is by partnering up with other photographers, photo magazines, blogs or anyone interested in film photography. In this we hope that we can promote Glassclops on your website, blog or something as simple as through your social network (Facebook,Twitter ect.). Also, please contact us if you would like to honor us with film images for an upcoming issue.
In this issue we feature: David Bacon (a world renowned photojournalist), Braulio Gonzalez ( a student photographer on the rise from East Palo Alto), Ronald Orlando (a musician photographer with profound images), Felipe R. Vasquez of Newark Califas (a photographer with keen eye for chicano culture imagery), and Charisse Domingo ( a photo journalist who showed us her first image she made).
If we unite digital won’t take over film, but just become a different medium.
Check out these photos by Bernardo Grijalva! Really captures the steel-ness of the bikes.

Current Exhibition at the San Jose Museum of Art
110 South Market Street, SJ
“The power of photography lies in part in the ability of the camera to seemingly objectify the world—to selectively frame and focus our attention. This exhibition of modernist photographs and photogravures from the first half of the twentieth century emphasizes the role of the photographer as an eloquent, purposeful observer and as a masterful editor of everyday experience.
Artists represented in this exhibition include Ruth Bernhard, Walker Evans, John Gutmann, André Kertész, Arthur Rothstein, Peter Stackpole, and Weegee, among others.”
