Age: 66



Summary:
photographer whose images of ordinary people in New York's humbler neighborhoods earned her belated recognition as one of the finest street photographers of her generation when she roamed the streets of New York with a camera in hand by finding opportunity at every corner, but much of her work recorded the daily routines and local characters in the city's Puerto Rican areas, where cultural exuberance coexisted with poverty and urban blight.
