Because you are the best, send me your mailing info and I will send you a signed print of my choosing. Typically, this will be an 8x8 or 8x10 image printed on archival 100% cotton rag paper. The print will be exhibition quality. Again, thanks for helping me reach my goals.

About Jesús Manuel Mena Garza

I am not getting any younger or richer. Currently, I am able to complete a few projects despite monetary obstacles, but your donation can help me realize more and better projects. Feel free to contact me about any of my past, current and planned projects. Thank you for your financial support!
$0 of $100 per month
I am open to communicating and assisting others through photography. Go to my website for contact information. All Patreon funds will go towards the completion of documentary projects.

I specialize in photographing diverse American communities from Chicanas and Chicanos to Czech polka festivals to decaying Southwestern infrastructure. I enjoy exploring the textures of an embedded history through the lens of my camera. I want to bring to light what too often has been marginalized.

For decades, I have been using film. Now I use digital equipment to document the great American cultural landscape. Every contribution helps me reach my goals. Thank you for donating!
