Under the Cuban Sun at Throckmorton Fine Arts
By Isabelle Von Arx
From June 16th to September 17th, the Thormotion Fine Art Gallery will be hosting a variety of photographer’s perspectives on Cuba from the 1930’s through to the present day.
The exhibition presents a dynamic historical and visual perspective — with photographs spanning times when Cuba was both America’s friend and enemy. Regardless of the political climate, photographers have evidently always been drawn to the country’s beautiful skies, pop colors and warm scenery. This series looks at Cuba through both the eyes of a tourist and those of a native. From Jess Hernadaz, who captures a Cuba gearing up for revolution to Mario Algaze’s work which draws attention to the Cuban’s isolation in daily life. His images truly capture the despair of the people in addition to the crumbling cities.
Photographers featured include: Susan S. Banks, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jane Cytryn, Graciela Iturbide, Joseph Ney, Michael Scalisi andChristophe Von Hohenberg.
