“Raised in violence, I enacted my own violence upon the world and myself. What saved me was the camera — its ability to gaze upon, to focus, to investigate, to reclaim, to resist, to re-envision.”
- Documentary Photographer Joseph Rodriguez
See Rodriguez's latest show "Cultural Memory Matters" at NYC's 601Artspace through March 12, 2011.
