This collage is a combination of two pictures. The original piece on the right is from AP Photo/Evan Vucci (2017) and the one in the left if from Erika P. Rodriguez (2017). Using a collage from Hurricane Maria I wanted to juxtapose how the U.S saw themselves while providing aid vs. how Puerto Ricans saw the aid they where receiving. Furthermore, I am trying to bring to light the narrative that U.S aid was toxic.
