STATEMENT OF INTENT

ASSOCIATESHIP PANEL

VISUAL ART



Having fulfilled a life-long ambition to visit Cuba, I have prepared this panel of photographs to depict a proud people who give freely of their time to any tourist with a camera (and a few dollars!)

To engage with complete strangers, where a foreign language was a barrier, and get them to reveal something of themselves was my goal.

Whether, in posing for the camera, the subject revealed their character, profession or environment was left to the individual. I could not have achieved my goal by simply asking each person to pose in a formal manner, thus the character of each individual is revealed as they wished you, the viewer, to see them.

It was a visit I will always remember - a proud people I will not easily forget and I hope, through this panel, many others may be motivated to visit Cuba.
