Real Cuba opens September 28th with a curator talk September 29th 5 to 8pm. Raul was unable to secure a visa to travel because the US Embassy wouldn’t grant him an interview until December. Not much has changed since the last administration shut down the Embassy. Except now the Cuban economy is in tatters due to the ongoing Embargo and the challenges of tourism post COVID. Even the Ukrainian war has impacted the island as the Russian tourism has disappeared.
The exhibit will include 35 images he selected from his life’s work coving Havana and the countryside.
