David Flores is a photographer who makes art that captures and responds to social connection. He believes that family, in all of its beautiful forms, stands as a cornerstone of the human experience, creating intersections between past, present and future and simultaneously weaving larger connections in the community.
In 2018, David began work on “Nueva Bronx: 21st Century Families” -- bringing free family portraiture to Railroad Park in the Bronx. The project is a response to recent nationalist movements that have attempted to remove and erase familial representations of immigrants and people of color. Queens residents have similarly suffered greatly as a result such movements, so PARADE invited Flores to offer his portraits to families participating in the march. These are their images.
