Exhibit: Cuba!

Now showing at Hoaglin's, 448 Massachusetts Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46204

Panning on the Prada, Old Havana, Cuba
These images are my attempt to capture and share the beauty and spirit of this magnificent country and its people.

Today, through the People-to-People program, travel from the United States to Cuba is legal so long as the trip facilitates interaction and cultural exchange. Cuba is a country that has suffered for many years under a communist regime, a situation that was exacerbated after the Bay of Pigs incident in the 60’s. Communism and trade restrictions with the U.S. have left the country’s economy floundering and its people in a perpetual state of poverty. In spite of these hardships, the courageous spirit of the Cuban people is evident in their interactions with guests to their country, and in their remarkable determination and innovation to “make do.” My interactions with the Cuban people were as colorful and fascinating as the environment of Old Havana, Trinidad, and the countryside in between.
