Rio Piedras street photography

This week I worked with my students a street photography exercise which saw us walking the streets of Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico.


During the two days we wandered the streets we met a couple of characters and also documented some of the modern street art decorating the streets. As you may know  PR is going through a crisis, themes such as government, social economic classes and the overall struglle of the working class have been the hot button topics of the last few years.


We wanted to capture the feel of these two summer days in the Rio Piedras streets. So here’s my set of images  I captured beside my students.



Bebe plays Puerto Rico for the first time

TodaybIbgot the chance to cover Spanish singer songwriter Bebe, who performed in Puerto Rico for the first time. Playing an intimate set in the Bellas Artes theatre in Santurce, Puerto Rico.


Known for her passionate lyrics and fiery performances Bebe delighted the crowd. She shared a few exchanges with her fans who sang along to most of her hits.

The complete set of pictures is below:


Fighter portraits series- 4

Continuing this portrait series here’s one of Ivan Calderon. He’s definetly a future hall of fame boxer and one of the best defensive fighters to come out of Puerto Rico.

This image for me is touching since it was taken during his first loss. Facing a younger, bigger and hungrier opponent all the while Calderon was entering the final stages of his career. He would retire a few fight later.

Known for their social content charged rock songs, Tiro Auger their lead singer has been considered by many to be one of the best local song writers of our island’s alternative rock scene.

Old school beats with a message 

Vico C is one of the founding voices of the Rap movement in Puerto Rico. Known for always including social content lyrics to his music nowadays he is a rare breed of musician in this genre.

Still going strong since beginning his career in the eighties Vico C sticks true to his message but still willing to modify his style without diluting it in the process.

While shooting this ser Inwanted to capture his intensity and passionate delivery.Here in this post I’ll include a couple of my favorite shots from this concert.
