Recycled Minds Picture Show

Our first Picture show of 2013 presents an amazing set of photos from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. OJOxOJO (Eye for an Eye) is a visual project developed by anthropologist Federico Cintrón-Moscoso. It represents the conversation that occurs when the audience's and the photographer's point of view meet over the photograph. In this collection the author invites you to explore the particular thorny and dry environment of southern Puerto Rico, one of the most ecologically diverse areas in the planet. In particular, these pictures where taken around Guanica's Dry Forest and Caja de Muertos (Dead People's Coffin).
You can see more of Federico's projects and ideas at Cultura de Papel

    Love these pictures from the island!

  4. The conversation that occurred in my mind had to do with the surprise that such dry beauty and cacti exist in Puerto Rico. The natural world is an amazing thing, and there is so much out there to keep us constantly surprised. Thank you.
