Since 1991, Harry Gamboa has shot images of selected Chicano men for Chicano Male Unbonded, a B&W photography series. The work on this series was initiated in response to media negative sterotype portrayals but then developed into an in-depth examination of presence, visual impact, and persistance of image in memory and place, as revealed through Chicano men. Many of the 150+ images in the series have been exhibited (Smithsonian Institution, International Center for Photography, The Huntington Library) and have been featured in numerous publications (Art In America, Zoom, Los Angeles Times).
The two exhibitions that are presenting images from his series are: Le paradis, ou presque, Los Angeles (1865-2008), This Side of Paradise: Body and Landscape in L.A.
