El Nuevo Mundo: The Landscape of Latino Los Angeles

June 29, 1999 – September 5, 1999

Museum: Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

Location: 2nd Floor

Approximately 100 photographs by Camilo Jose Vergara reveal the changes in the physical and social character of Los Angeles as its population has become increasingly Latino during the past 30 years. Vergara's photographs document the ways in which the Latino community is building and decorating their homes, landscaping their yards, transforming workplaces, and in the process, creating neighborhoods that reflect and maintain their cultural identities.
