The event takes place in the Bronx’s Melrose neighborhood, one of New York’s fastest-growing and most dynamic communities. The festival will feature installations in parks, schools and gardens and along city sidewalks, allowing an estimated 50,000 residents and visitors to see what is one of New York’s most exciting cultural activities.

The Latin American Foto Festival is made possible by the Open Society FoundationsBronxCare Health System and BronxWorks. The outdoor exhibits were printed by United Photo Industries.
