However, the numbered sections and the wall-to-wall margins create the impression of an ordered, tightly controlled expression. It reminds me of looking at the outside of a city apartment building and getting an impression of order and balance, while a closer look at those who populate the building reveals wildly clashing values, attitudes and habits.

His key interest is identity — not a traditional identity such as being Puerto Rican, a New Yorker, or Nuyorican, but one that encompasses the barrage of experiences, influences, humiliations and joys that make up the urban experience, an identity of the moment.
