Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

my exhibit in Holguin, Cuba opening 24 October

The Cuban Ministry of Culture is having an exhibit of my "Religion - South Apopka" work in the lobby of the Alex Urquiola regional library in Holguin City, Cuba. The opening at 10AM on 24 October is the lead off event for the Iberoamericana cultural festival 24-29 October.

This exhibit has 19 prints from a series I did in 2001-2002 about religion in a historic Negro community in Florida. My primary interest for a number of recent years has been the similarities of the culture of the deep south in the US with Cuban culture.

I will be at the opening, then in and out for the following 10 days as I am participating in the festival and also live part time about 60 km away. If anyone happens to be in the area, I would love to say hello.

Congratulations, Bob. The work is superb, as many of us know, and exhibiting it there is a way create community and a sense of commonality, despite all the white noise generated by politics of conflict and division. Saludos—and cheers.

This would have been a great reason to make it back to Cuba, unfortunately I'll be in Jordan on those days.
