Family, in all of its beautiful forms, stands as a cornerstone of the human experience, creating intersections between past, present, and future, simultaneously weaving larger connections in the community. During August and September 2018, David Flores offered free family portraiture in Railroad Park and the greater Morrisania neighborhood with on-site photography, printing, display, and digital sharing. This project is a response to recent nationalist movements that have attempted to remove and erase familial representations of immigrants and people of color. Parents, children, elders, extended family and friends all participated in the making of formal images and left with a large format print of themselves free of charge. This project is a collaboration with ArtBuilt, Queens Museum, DreamYard, WHEDco, Bronx Defenders and NYC Parks.
