About The Artwork

Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles June 5. 1968. The following evening in New York City's West Side Spanish Harlem, residents, mostly Hispanic, held an impromptu memorial service in the street to memorialized his death. Photo depicts a cross with words 'El Corazon Barrio" -- 'The Heart of the Barrio', as residents' hands reach to bear a large cross bearing photos of Robert Kennedy, and his previously assassinated brother President John F. Kennedy. This was the first publication of a photo by photographer John Crosley in the New York Times. This photo is a cross between 'street style' photography as popularized by Henri Cartier-Bresson and straight news photography. It was taken with the intent to document the rarity of a spontaneous street memorial among RFK supporters with the emerging photographer's street style, a style which then did not actually bear the name 'street' in popular usage, but instead of the school of 'documentary' --news--current events. This photo was published prominently in the front section of the New York Times, in later editions, and was emblematic of the reaction many New Yorkers and US citizens felt at another assassination in 1968 of a prominent proponent of liberalizing US laws, especially those regarding Civil Rights.
