Jesús Manuel Mena Garza is a photographer and videographer located in Fort Worth, Texas. For the first 50 years of his life, he lived in the San Francisco Bay Area. For more than four decades, Garza has lectured about and exhibited his photographs from coast to coast, in Europe and Mexico. He has taught classes in photography, film and video at private and public universities. 
Jesús Garza has conceived and managed diverse events including panel discussions, workshops, seminars and conferences. The 67 year old photographer currently volunteers at Tarrant County Community College. There, a few miles from his home he teaches casual classes for senior citizens in photography and video. 
Garza doesn't exhibit and lecture as much as when he lived in California. Maybe that will change when he moves back in 2022-23. Please feel free to contact the artist at (682) 365-8702 should you have questions, comments or requests.
