Speaking of my father…

I found this profile project by Carlee Fernandez called a Self Portrait: Portrait of My Father, Manuel Fernandez, 2006.  The image is courtesy the artist and Acuna-Hansen Gallery, Los Angeles. I had been speaking of my very own father and ventured to find images of the Chicano Movement online. My father was a long-time activist and labor organizer. I stumbled upon this and feel blessed to witness how Ms. Fernandez extends the  image of her father from this time frame into more poignant forms of art.
