My family, the García family, has eaten thousands of elotes, enjoyed many taquizas, has eaten innumerable bowls of menudo, and has welcomed many new years on the blocks of Chavez Drive. This series of photos capture memories, places and the everyday people whose magic brings life to this street.
Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service's community photography feature was launched with the help of a successful crowd-funding campaign conducted by Marquette University students. Four cameras are lent to community members from different neighborhoods to document their lives. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
