TIS THE SEASON! SoHarlem & En Foco Celebrate the Holidays and Launch of the Nueva Luz Fashion Issue


The phenomenon of fashion is fascinating in its ubiquity and complexity. Individuals develop an intimate relationship with clothes, and many construct and express their identities through their appearance. Additionally, sartorial expressions can serve to align with certain groups or assert one’s difference. Fashion is also performative, a spectacle. These multiple facets make fashion a rich topic for photography. This issue of Nueva Luz will explore the multiple ways in which we communicate, produce, consume and experience fashion.

Curated by Tanya Melendez, the Senior Curator of Education and Public Programs at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Launched in 1985, Nueva Luz is an ongoing art publication that addresses social and cultural issues at the fore of photography,  with a particular emphasis on narratives from artists of color. From its inception, the publication’s mission was to advance the professional status of contemporary photographers of diverse backgrounds and cultures. Each issue contains images from important photographers and essays from writers, artists, and critics, serving as a record of cultural trailblazers who helped to establish a much-needed narrative about artists of color working in the discipline of photography.
