Tony Gleaton: Africa’s Legacy in Mexico

Tony Gleaton: Africa’s Legacy in Mexico is a selection of 20 photographs drawn from a larger series entitled Tengo Casi 500 Años: Africa’s Legacy in Mexico, Central and South America, exploring the black presence in Mexico. Consisting of portraits and scenes of everyday life, Tony Gleaton produced the black and white photographs during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s while traveling throughout Latin America in search of the African Diaspora. The photographs convey the complexities of relationships and identities in black communities in Mexico.
