There's many ways one can explain the siren song of Cuba and its irresistible sway over photographers. For one, there is the lure of its surfaces, brimming with color and tropical light. For another, there is the nostalgic persistence of the past, which invites us to reconsider our relationship to the present and cleanse our spirit of the distractions of cyber-modernity. In Cuba the art of conversation has not been lost. And even the silence is shared; people still know how to enjoy a quiet moment together.
I’ve signed on to teach a new workshop in Cuba - Jan 24 to 31 - with my good buddy and Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Alex Garcia. Havana and Trinidad are on our itinerary, plus we’ll be there in time for the unforgettable March of the Torches!
