Frank Espada’s ‘The Puerto Rican Diaspora’
BAPC would not have existed were it not for Frank’s efforts in getting together a group of 16 dedicated photographers to set up a photogroup that also gives back to the community. Our founding members spent a year in setting up the legal structure as a nonprofit organization and working with the IRS and State Board over 10 years ago.
Traveling from Puerto Rico to New York and from Hartford to Hawaii, Frank Espada documented in loving portraits his countrymen and women engaged in ballet and theater, drug rehab and field work. Their faces are open, direct and trusting, presenting a nuanced take on complicated lives that are often led out of the spotlight.
