Identity in the U.S.
The other day I attended Taller Puertorriqueno's opening of their new photo exhibition. The exhibition, What it means to be Afro-Latino in Philadelphia, looks at eight distinct stories from Philadelphia. Each photograph tells a story by itself. However, they also have text next to each photograph which goes deeper into their lives. Very inspirational, everyone should look at themselves and ask, "Who am I?" Identity is very important in the U.S. and these photographs area great portrayal of just that.
