Trevon Blondet

!Mirando Puerto Rico!
I went to Puerto Rico in July 2017. It was the first time being there since I was seventeen, and I wanted sorely to feel connected with the island and find some internal peace for myself. During the trip, I photographed the countryside, driving along the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean while taking portraits of the people I came across.

Trevon received a Bachelors of Fine Art in Communication, from Long Island University. In 2013 he began volunteering at the Bronx Documentary Center and was exposed to various ways photography can tell stories without writing. He joined the Bronx Photo League to explore opportunities as a photojournalist and to document his community. Trevon has been published in the New York Times in 2015 for his work on the Jerome Avenue Workers Project, and also documenting The Bushwick Collective outdoor gallery in Brooklyn since 2014. Trevon starting out photographing concerts and sports; now he documents everyday Bronx neighborhoods and people to shed a positive light on his subjects. Using portraits and street photography, Trevon is a visual storyteller with his photography.
