"The City of Raleigh Museum announces a photography display opening on Friday, January 4 titled “Al Norte al Norte: Latino Life in North Carolina.” This traveling exhibition organized by the North Carolina Museum of History features the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist and Triangle resident José Galvez. It chronicles the diversity and strength of the state’s growing Latino community - from business owners and farm laborers to grandparents and kindergarten graduates.

Many Latinos have made North Carolina their home since the 1980’s, in search of better economic opportunity. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates North Carolina’s Hispanic population increased by 22 percent (to 1.26 million) between 2010 and 2017. Shot over 10 years, the exhibit’s black & white photographs (grouped into categories of family, faith, celebration, and work) depict the daily life of Latino North Carolinians adapting to and shaping life across our state. Less political in nature, the exhibit seeks to underscore the cultural similarities that exist for everyone today."
