VISUAL ARTS | "Calle Lake": Mexican-American photographer Xavier Tavera documents Lake Street's Latino community

Minnesotan photographer Xavier Tavera has produced a large and diverse body of work since immigrating to the United States from Mexico. In Calle Lake, an exhibit opening on January 14 at Augsburg College's Christensen Center Art Gallery, Tavera documents members of the Latino community on Lake Street in Minneapolis. These photographs were selected by Tavera from among those that will be on display.
