Ben Garza was involved in the Chicano Student Movement while a student at UCSB. He was an amateur photographer and recorded
events and meetings. This small collection came to CEMA from the UCSB Library’s Colección Tloque Nahuaque with no known provenance.
Of particular interest are the few, but significant photographs, including one photograph taken at City Hall during the Chicano
Student Movement at UCSB, and one photograph of Cesar Chavez during a speech he gave on UCSB campus. Ben Garza’s autobiographical
statement is very helpful; his thoughts on his life and work add depth and context to the photographs.
