Estelas de María: Photo Exhibition
Last September, Puerto Rico was devastated by two hurricanes just two weeks apart: first Irma, then María. The cleanup began immediately, and soon individuals and organizations across the mainland United States were rallying to send aid to the island.
Reporter Simón Rios began reporting on these efforts in Massachusetts and he and photographer Jesse Costa decided to travel to the island to look at how local fundraising efforts were affecting people in Puerto Rico. Their work details not only the destruction of Puerto Rico, but also the reconstruction that began in the immediate wake of Hurricane Maria. That reconstruction is expected to continue for years to come.
Joining WBUR is Boston Globe photographer Jessica Rinaldi. Rinaldi traveled to Puerto Rico on a reporting trip in the days after the storm.
This photo exhibition is free and open to the public.
