July 12-22nd, the Bronx Documentary Center will create the first-ever Latin American Foto 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.

With installations in parks, schools, gardens and along city sidewalks, an estimated 50,000 residents and visitors will see what is sure to be one of New York's most exciting cultural activities.
