Eduardo Sinigaglia Sierra is an actual student of History of the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez. At first look…he’s an average little guy with dreadlocks wearing a cap around the campus. But once you get to share some words with him for a while maybe you’ll consider him a very unparticular individual. A kid from a catholic, conservative and caring family, but his mother and father are very liberal in some way. The life along his parents caused that his view of the world is not like how the “mainstream” crap says. Not affiliated to any political party, he believes in the independence of his loved country Puerto Rico; although he also has Mexican roots because of his grandmother. You get a little shocked when you get to know he does not believe in democracy and is a fascist. He strongly believes that “the political circus” of Puerto Rico can be ended with a fair administrator, or a president; he says with a laugh; evaluated by a parliament for 30 to 50 years.
Born in Ponce and raised in the small town of Guayanilla, surrounded by the amazing natural resources that only the locals are aware of. This is basically what he lives for; he is a defender of his culture, he wants his country to get recognized. He explains that he studies history for that reason; “People have to know where they come from in order to move forward and this system does not allow people to know who they really are…we cannot allow that”.
Almost any person can share an interest with him: he has a handful of conversation topics to discuss, among them can be mentioned: Astronomy, natural sciences, psychology, history, spiritualism, politics, sports, education, culture and others. His music taste is quite diverse as well, he enjoys listening to artists ranging from Chopin and Vivaldi to Pink Floyd and The Doors. When you ask him about goals in his life you will get the essence of his person. “To live you only need food, water and space in the place you love but never alone; that would really make me happy”. He plans to get a double Ba. In history and psychology to try to reform the education system in order to accomplish his view of this society. If this does not happen, he will make “patria” throughout his photography.
