Los Out of Focus Neuyorricans - Solo Exhibition by Adal.

Los Out of Focus Nuyoricans - which is exhibited alongside an essay written by Rev. Pedro Pietri on seeing the portraits for the first time - reflects on the recurring theme of double identity among Puerto Ricans that leave the Island and the nostalgia for an ever-evolving identity which has never been identified. Additionally, it is the first time that this portfolio has been exhibited by itself in Puerto Rico.

In order to get a new generation of people introduced to this important project, ADÁL has taken the liberty of breaking up one of the portfolios and sell each work individually so it can reach new people and have each individual photograph priced of $125 or $200 for a photo and one of the excerpts of Pietri’s poem/essay.
 The complete portfolio will also be available for sale. This piece is part of the permanent collection of the Huston Museum of Art and the Museo de El Barrio in NYC among others. 

ADÁL is considered one of Puerto Rico’s most influential photographers along with Victor Vazquez and Jack Delano. He migrated to New York City and co-founded Foto Gallery - a gallery devoted to photography as a fine art and photo-derived works - alongside Alex Coleman in 1975. He also co-founded El Puerto Rican Embassy with Rev. Pedro Pietri in 1994. A retrospective exhibition of his work, covering 1973 through 2012, is in the works for the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, and is presently scheduled for 2014. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience Los Out of Focus Nuyoricans or the opportunity to own a selected image from the series signed and dated by the artist.
