Imagine Cuba: Photographs by Sandro Miller/ Last Day

December 26, 2010 @ 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

For over thirty years, internationally acclaimed photographer Sandro Miller has found a unique connection with the people he photographs. Between 1999 and 2007, Miller traveled to Cuba and shot one of his last series on film before transitioning to digital photography.

The photographic essay presents the Cuban people in a unique light, ranging from unposed, candid images of people going about their everyday lives to portraits of Cuba’s professional athletes and ballet dancers. In addition, this exhibition includes a previously unexhibited series of Miller’s black-and-white portraits of elderly Cubans taken in 2009. The subjects’ personal histories are contained in their deeply lined faces as they regard the camera with gazes alternately frank, humorous, defiant, or enigmatic, but always dignified.
