Visiting Cuba in November of 2014 was a peak experience for me. Traveling with an accomplished group of photographers was thrilling and daunting. It increased the pressure I had placed on myself to make one meaningful image.

As it happened, we had the privilege to visit a country on the cusp of great change. Just a week after our return, the Obama administration announced the path to normalization of relations. Already, travelers familiar with the island nation are reporting stark change. I can only hope there will be benefit for all the peoples of this country. They are resilient, resourceful, and optimistic. But they are tired and they have suffered, needlessly, for too long.

I’ve recounted a bit more of the story in my self-published Four Days in Havana. You can see it under the Books & Prints link.
