Erika P Rodriguez                 Portrait by Joshua Corbett

Erika P Rodriguez

She focuses on projects about the underrepresented area of the Caribbean, Puerto Rico. Her interests have been molded by the fact that she comes from a place which is culturally Latin American, and politically an unincorporated territory of the U.S., through which she explores topics such as identity and community. Through her work she tries to document the lived Puerto Rican reality – its economic crisis, and colonial condition.
