Great Music, Great Dancers, Great Food, Great PHOTOGRAPHY!
In 1492, Christopher Columbus landed on and claimed the island now occupied by Cuba, for the Kingdom of Spain. Amid the warm crystalline waters of the sparkling Caribbean, over 500 years of roller-coaster history have conspired to create one of Latin America’s most electric and culturally unique societies. ‘Havana which recently celebrated its 500th year is very much like a rose,’ said Fico Fellove in the movie The Lost City, ‘it has petals and it has thorns…so it depends on how you grab it. But in the end it always grabs you.’
You will have the opportunity to explore and photograph local neighborhoods that very few get to experience, and to engage in person-to-person activities with Cubans and their everyday life. Meet with Cuban historians, teachers, artists, musicians, naturalists, and others, and experience this fast-changing island nation through their eyes. Work with some local photographers who will help you capture the essence of the Cuban people.
Your cameras will record the warm vibrant people of this rapidly changing Caribbean nation. You will bring their lives, occupations and homes into today’s focus.
Your experiences will be unique and you will be fascinated by the authenticity of each and every day.
Join the Palm Beach Photographic Centre for this one-of-a-kind experience, with access to true neighborhoods and real people, Schools, Artists, Musicians, Ballet figures and dance schools, Sports figures, Artisans, a cigar plantation, and much more.
