The exhibition examines how Latino photographers depicted America’s urban streets when notions of the inner city began to emerge. The title of the exhibition is taken from Piri Thomas’ bestselling memoir Down These Mean Streets (1967), in which the author narrates his tough upbringing in New York City’s El Barrio.
