Puerto Rican Pantheon

Puerto Rican Pantheon is a series of digital images of well known characters of Puerto Rican history who have fought for the island's independence in words, actions or both. The word pantheon refers to "all the gods of a people or religion collectively," and it also refers (in Puerto Rican dialect) to the structure of a family tomb, a repository for the dead. Out of this group, many are almost unknown to the majority of Puerto Ricans in the island and the U.S. And of course, many are still missing, and others are infamous. The work began with the believers in independence. This is a work in progress, and it may grow or change in concept, material and/or form.
