Roy Baizan: I am a Mexican photographer from the Bronx. I photograph my community,my family, and my environment to preserve their stories. I use the camera as a tool to build my communities up and celebrate all that they are and to deconstruct the stereotypes of them. The photograph is just the beginning. My work as a photo educator is crucial to the celebration of my community. Passing forward and building upon the visual languages of those before me and the next generation to come.
