Photos at Zoom: Latin American Street Photography

With Curatorial Fellow for Diversity in the Arts, Dalina Aimée Perdomo Álvarez

This print viewing explores the tradition of street photography in Latin America and Latinx communities in the United States. The selection of images encourages viewers to question what is defined as Latinx, how the photographers' cultural identities might influence their perspectives, and the fine line between street photography and ethnography when it comes to capturing marginalized communities. Select artists include Rebel Betty, Dawoud Bey, Jack Delano, and Graciela Iturbide.

This event will be recorded and transcribed.  If you require special accommodations for this event, please contact mocp@colum.edu.
