Ricky Flores was born in New York to Puerto Rican parents in 1961. His father, a merchant seaman, and his mother, a garment worker, lived in the Tremont section of the Bronx during the early 60’s. Flores father died in 1965 from bronchial asthma and his mother moved the family to the Longwood section of the Bronx, where he was raised. Flores started documenting life in the South Bronx after he purchased a camera with a small inheritance he received from his father in 1980. He embraced on a journey of self-discovery born out of photographing his friends and family during one of the most turbulent times in the history of New York City.
Over the years Flores freelanced for The Daily News, The New York Times, The City Sun and The Village Voice and currently works for The Journal News, part of the USA Today Network.
Flores is recognized for his work on the attacks on World Trade on September 11, 2001 and is a two time winner of the New York Press Publishers Association for Spot News. He has a permanent installation at I.S. 206 in the Tremont section of the Bronx commissioned by the School Construction Authority, New York City Board of Education and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
