Close-Ups of Puerto Rican New York

Eight photographers captured what it meant to live in New York and call oneself Puerto Rican.

“Dia” embraces the period from the 1960s to the 1980s — when Puerto Rican New York was very much on the rise — with the work of eight photographers: Máximo Colón, Joe Conzo, Perla de León, Pablo Delano, Frank Espada, Ricky Flores, David Gonzalez (a Times colleague and frequent contributor to Lens) and Francisco Reyes II.
