Photographer and former Merchant Marine.
This collection is an important resource for its impressive visuals, which document the life and activities of individuals, families and organizations that make up the Puerto Rican experience in New York, as well as the experience of other Hispanic groups as seen through the lens of Cuban photographer Justo Marti. They primarily capture the time period between the 1940s and 1980s and the major social and political events, leaders and movements of those times. The entire collection is a visual testament of the Latino/Puerto Rican presence in New York City. The collection contains 98 cubic feet of prints and 78 cubic feet of negatives.
