Life is an experience that deserves to be embraced. I live out loud and am drawn to other places and cultures that are vibrant and full of life. This desire is what pushes me to learn more about the world we share with each other and make a connection with another person. Photography is the art I use to make those connections.
While walking around different cities on the small Caribbean island of Cuba, I experienced a range of feelings. The people of the island are resourceful, artistic, outgoing, and dynamic. With my camera in hand, I took some time to learn more about this place that had been forbidden to us. I took a moment to see how things are, how they’ve been, and how they could be. What I learned is that they are people, just like we are people. They live their lives to the best of their ability, just as we try to do.
The images captured are thoughtfully digitally enhanced to project the feelings that I experienced when I took the photos. Every piece represents a different moment in Cuba. Every moment is just that, a fleeting passage of time. In the blink of an eye, or the click of a camera shutter, everything changes. A Moment in Cuba is my work that shares the beauty I witnessed during the time I was there. This art is the result of that moment.
