Join the MoCP and photographer Adriana Parrilla for a virtual sneak peek into her studio! 

Adriana Parrilla was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She holds a B.A. in Modern Languages from the University of Puerto Rico, and an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from Spéos Photographic Institute in Paris. Her professional background as a ballet and contemporary dancer played a significant role in developing an inner sensibility to the world around her. Her work is an all-encompassing story, which centers on themes of identity construction, race, and resilience.  In 2019, she was awarded the Teodoro Torres Award (Photo-Essay) in the Annual Competition of the Association of Puerto Rican Photojournalists.
