Description

The Boricua Dialogues began from a desire to engage with my identity as a Puerto Rican who has always felt out of place in Latinx environments. This research project uses 50 35mm film photos and 11 interviews to articulate aspects of the shared cultural narrative between Puerto Ricans with different experiences. The project does not establish a set definition of being “Puerto Rican” but rather brings together a group of Puerto Rican voices into a photography book that highlights the lived experience of being Puerto Rican.
