PICTURE PERFECT BRONX

A group of Nuyorican photographers from the South Bronx has a new photo exhibit on display. The group calls itself “Los Seis del Sur”…six from the South. They chronicled everyday life in their neighborhoods during the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, when crime, drugs and arson were ravaging the Bronx. The six were just young men at the time, but they created a photographic history that no outsiders could rival. Lily Jamali reports.
