I was honored by Glenn Ruga's inclusion of my photonarrative on Cuba—CUBA: Story and Community on socialdocumentary.net. A while before that, I'd begun a year of correspondence and preparation of the 20" x 30" prints and method of hanging, received my formal invitation from the Cuban Government and carried them onto the second non-stop flight from JFK after Obama's January 2015 announcement to end the US embargo. Havana friends met me at Jose Martí Airport and we mounted the show. In that same crazy week I began ethnographic interviews with four men about their experiences of growing up gay in 1980s Havana and am working on this new project for 2016.
If you get a chance, take a look at the exhibit abstract and statement to understand what I look for as a street photographer—whether in Bulgaria, Morocco, Turkey, France, Latin America and elsewhere, or just at home in Boston.
Please look at other work on socialdocumentary.net to see other photographers' superb work.
