THE POINT

Brazilian artist Ananda Nahu paints a mural in Hunts Point, The Bronx, New York City.

"Yvette" is based on a 1984 photograph by Ricky Flores.

Yvette was a young woman when she died of AIDS in the 1980s, shortly after this photo was taken.

Soon after Ananda finished this painting, Yvette's three children all reconnected after being estranged since childhood.
