Cambio de Guardia: Puerto Rico 1898, 2013
Cambio de Guardia: Puerto Rico 1898 consists of a series of photographs that document the monuments of the Spanish American War of 1898 in Puerto Rico. Located in the towns of Guanica, Yauco, Coamo and Guayama these monuments not only commemorate the events that took place in Puerto Rico during this war, but they are also reminders of the current political situation of Puerto Rico. These images evoke a sense of ambivalence about the relationship of Puerto Rico with the United States. This sense of ambivalence is manifested in the photographs through the deteriorated state of the monuments and their imposition in the quotidian lives of Puerto Ricans.
