Erika P. Rodríguez is a photographer based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 

In the past six years I have covered extensively the economic crisis, the aftermath of hurricanes and earthquakes, among other stories. Being from a place that is culturally Latin American, but politically a territory of the United States, has shaped my interest as a documentary photographer to explore the topics of memory and identity. My work focuses on countering the Caribbean tropical visual stereotype. And my personal work meditates on the fragility of the island’s collective memory and the implicit tension present by the lack of our political identity.

My work appears regularly in The New York Times, and has been published on The Guardian, Washington Post, NPR, CNN, and Smithsonian Magazine, among others.


Member of Diversify, Authority Collective & Women Photograph.

Photography is a dialogue.

I choose the subtle moments because it is there – in the quietness of time – where a story is also told.
