Lowriting: Shots, Rides & Stories from the Chicano Soul

Broken Sword Publications
Edited by Santino Rivera Photography by Art Meza

Art Meza is a photographer from Los Angeles. His shimmering depictions of the vintage autos (on Instagram) caught the eye of author, editor and indie publisher Santino Rivera. “Santino approached me with (the book idea),” said Meza. “He wanted to do a book where it would be a combination of my photography and people’s short stories, essays and poetry about lowrider culture.” Lowriting collects over 50 of Meza’s photos and pairs them with stories, artwork and poetry from Luis J. Rodriguez, Luis Alberto Urrea, Lalo Alcaraz, Gustavo Arellano and Alvaro Rodriguez (cowriter of Machete). Lowriting also has contributions from actors Danny De La Paz (Boulevard Nights, American Me) and Daniel Villarreal (Stand and Deliver, American Me) as well as many more.
