KQED World: Thu, Oct 10, 2013 -- 5:00 AM

This documentary showcases Gleaton's award-winning photography of black and American Indian cowboys, the African diaspora in Latin America, and the assimilation of Asians, Africans and Europeans with indigenous Americans. The program explores how Gleaton, while shooting in documentary style, connects with his subjects to achieve a one-of-a-kind image. It features more than 80 of Gleaton's black-and-white portraits.
Gleaton, whose photographs focus on the social construction of race, is best known for his collection, Africa's Legacy in Mexico, Central and South America. His work, which captures images of people separated from the dominant cultural group, has been exhibited in galleries throughout the United States and Mexico, including the National Museum of American Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Smithsonian.
Photographers Gary Miller and Andrew Liccardo comment on Gleaton's pioneering work in the area of cultural photography. Historian William Tydeman, director of the Texas Tech University Southwest Collection, predicts Gleaton will have a prominent place in the history of documentary photography. According to Tydeman, "Tony will be at the absolute top of those photographers who have had a concentration on ethnicity, on race and the interactions between race, culture and behavior."
