2 0 1 3 ..... Puerto Rican Day parade .... Hosted by CAMARADAS on 115 street 1st ave. Vison by ROMAN VIAJEO HERNANDEZ

Viajeo last year approached me with a concept to help Camaradas participate in the Puerto Rican day

 parade, and he thought out the whole concept and methods to execute his ideas. The only obstacle

present was the he had so many obligations the he had to meet and feared that this special project

wouldn't be manifested on time to help aid the Camaradas , a local  neighborhood and community


Roman reached out to me via Facebook, and described his vision to me and from there we made this

 collaboration project a success!

On ... 2 0 1 2 , on a beautiful Sunday morning, I marched with Camaradas owner and their staff from

 50 street on 5th avenue all the way up to 77 street with my son and his father Wez.

A monumental experience !

This year .. 2 0 1 3 ..... once again the Camaradas owner reached out to me this time and requested in

 a very short notice if I was able to make two more Puerto Rican heroes and ground shakers of their

 times, The limited funds, and the many projects I was handling made me want to reject the project at

 first for I felt I would have overwhelmed my self and my family . But the strength of Love and

 courage to make this Powerful and impactful visual for the parade again , I couldn't refuse!

The following images I collected through the participants and art supporters !
