When Hugo Ludeña moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1993 he felt the disconnect between Latinos and the rest of the city so palpably, he was driven to action. He picked up his camera and set about capturing for the rest of us the rich landscape of Seattles Latino life. On view at 4Culture this month, are the fruits of his labor, vividly exhibiting a vibrant and beautiful character of this city that many people have never seen. Poignantly personal and pregnant with tradition and ritual, Ludeñas images dont make us outsiders looking in on staged community moments; we actually get a slice of the action.
