In a series of online conversations that accompanied the winter issue of Aperture magazine, “Latinx,” photographers, historians, and writers reflected on imagery that celebrates the dynamic visions of Latinx people across the United States. Pilar Tompkins Rivas, chief curator and deputy director of curatorial and collections at the Lucas Museum, guest-edited the issue and joined writer Elizabeth Ferrer for the first discussion in this series, looking inside the issue that spans a century of image-making, connecting historical and contemporary photography, and covers the themes of political resistance, family and community, fashion and culture, and the complexity of identity in American life.
