    Raw, Rough and Vibrant - My Cuba


    Exhibition dates: 1 - 6 October 2019
    Opening: Tuesday 1 Oct, 5 - 8pm

    Raw, Rough and Vibrant: My Cuba

    Cuba has always fascinated me, hypnotized me – a place of worn-down buildings, tired streets, and broken sidewalks shimmering under the raw sun and heavy step of life. The more time I spent in Havana, the more I was drawn in by the Cuban people and their way of life. They captured my imagination – and over time, my heart.

    I cannot get enough of Cuba.

    With this exhibition I seek to capture the mystique and allure of Havana, as well as its unrefined coarseness. Each photographic artwork is rough and textured, indicating a world of shattered dreams and promises. Brittle and fragile to the touch, like a dried tobacco leaf ready to fall apart at any moment – shot against a background of latent energy and vibrancy, dreams and hope.
