Puerto Rico: 365 Photographs

The photographer José Rodrigo Madera [es] shot one photograph a day during two years, as part of his project “365.” His photos were only visible to his friends on Facebook, until the magazine Revista Cruce [es] published 20 of them for everyone to enjoy. 

José Rodrigo Madera describes himself as:

…fotógrafo de profesión y nunca estudió Artes. Estudió Comunicaciones en la Universidad Interamericana y quiere enseñar fotografía. Cree en el matrimonio y se considera de izquierda. Dedica todo su trabajo al hombre de su vida, Emil Alejandro, y a la mujer de su vida, Penelope.

…a professional photographer who never studied Art. Studied Communications at the Universidad Interamericana, and wants to teach photography. Believes in marriage and considers himself a Leftist. Dedicates all of his work to the man of his life, Emil Alejandro, and the woman who is the love of his life, Penelope.

Here is a selection of some of his beautiful photographs.*
