Francisco Molina Reyes II. Hombre con Perrito, South Bronx, 1979
In the 1970’s the Bronx was burning and photographers rushed to document the economic decline of New York City’s northernmost borough. Although most had never met, six Bronx-based photographers set out to tell the story of their home as they saw it. The work of Seis Del Sur, Spanish for “Six from the South,” is being exhibited at the Bronx Documentary Center starting Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013. The show features a mix of street photography, crime scene photography and portraiture as well as video by Joe Conzo, Jr., Ricky Flores, Ángel Franco, David Gonzalez, Edwin Pagán and Francisco Molina Reyes II. The opening reception will begin at 4 p.m. The exhibition runs through March 8, 2013.
