SIGNED ND LIMITED EDITION OF 15. In 1979, Lou Dematteis began a photographic documentation of the Mission (street) Lowrider Cruise Night in San Francisco and the mainly Latinx youths who made up its participants. “I spent time the next two years photographing the scene, from its high point in 1979 and the beginning of 1980, through Mayor Diane Feinstein’s police crackdown later that year. It was a special ride never since reprised… A ride both slow and fast, one that was artistic, hopeful, unique, youthful and ultimately dangerous when the cops moved in to shut it down.” Malulu Editions publishes artistic works of unique cultural significance and aesthetic significance, focusing on works from late 20th century and contemporary North and Central America.
