It’s a small world. The entire world is here. New York City is the world’s most international city. These are some of the Magazine’s international clients.
This is not an Adál Maldonado
We dedicate this image to Puerto Rican photographer and conceptual artist Adál Maldonado (Smithsonian, Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, Queens Museum). Adál uses UFOs in his images. He will look you straight in the eye and insist that he was kidnapped by aliens in Puerto Rico.
In Caribbean expression, most everything is a wry joke. Puerto Rico was colonized, and that’s like being kidnapped by aliens.
Love your work Adál. We haven’t been able to stop laughing since we met. We’ve been kidnapped by Puerto Ricans, and you are our favorite alien.
