This July, the Bronx Documentary Center will create the first ever Latin American Photo Festival held in New York City. This festival will bring award-winning photographers from throughout the Caribbean and Latin America to exhibit their photographs, create installations and hold workshops and panel discussions.
The event will take place in the Bronx’s Melrose neighborhood, one of New York's fastest growing and most dynamic neighborhoods. With many installations in storefront windows and along city sidewalks as well as in galleries and churches, an estimated 50,000 residents and visitors will see what is sure to be one of New York's most exciting cultural activities.
