Así Somos / Who We Are By Ada Nivia López and Mark Joseph If poetry can be found in photographs, look no farther than "Así Somos / Who We Are," the breath-taking collaboration of educator Ada Nivia López and award-winning photographer Mark Joseph. This beautiful photo-essay is about the Puerto Rican people - the native Taíno, Africans and Spanish, who formed their country and culture. This is a passionate look at the poor and well-to-do, workers, farmers, musicians, artists and families. Mark Joseph is a master portraitist. Each image captures a panoply of human emotions. The book began as a concept by Ada Nivia López and her essays at the back of the book provide fascinating capsules of the island's history, landmarks, festivals and achievements. I fell in love with this book not just for its visual exuberance, but for the way it prompted me to see connections out of the human experience. "Así Somos / Who We Are" is a splendid photo documentary of the people of Puerto Rico, and also a reminder of who we all are.
