Ricky Flores was born in New York to Puerto Rican parents in 1961 and started documenting life in the South Bronx in 1979 after he purchased a Pentax K1000 with a small inheritance from his father. It started a journey of self-discovery born out of photographing the lives of his friends and family during one of the most turbulent times in the history of the Bronx. He continued documenting the lives of the Black and Puerto Rican residents whose streets he shared during those days of social unrest, and the early days of hip hop culture. His new book South Bronx Family Album is available to pre-order now and Joe calls it a must own. They also touch on one of Ricky’s contemporaries Mel Rosenthal and his excellent documentary of the Bronx.
