Title: A la conquista
Author: Ruiz-Valarino, Carlos
Abstract: This thesis paper is an integral and complementary part of my thesis exhibition "A la conquista . . .” Its purpose is to enhance my audience's understanding of the interests and vicissitudes that have motivated me to undertake such a challenging task. This project has its origin in an earlier autobiographical photographic project. Through it I developed an interest in visually questioning aspects related to my past and present: How did I become the individual I am? And what aspects of my experience define my identity? My parents are of different nationalities, I was born in Puerto Rico, and then raised alternately in Puerto Rico and Spain. I feel like someone whose national and cultural identity could not be defined by a passport, a birthplace or a nation and its culture. By neutralizing the possibility of my developing a singular national passion, these circumstances have forever marked my life. Since I am aware of my circumstances, I have asked myself a number of questions.
