Florida Museum of Photographic Arts
September 22 – December 31, 2017
The exhibition looks at both the Cuban eye and at its visitors’ eye and spans a period of time that is historic: the early 1930’s to present day.
Beginning with Walker Evans and concluding with the work of Raúl Cañibano, we take a walk through time and space. They are the monumental bookends for our stroll. Walker Evans first photographed Cuba in the thirties. Raúl Cañibano is today’s masterful Cuban equivalent. Both have directed their gaze toward the nitty gritty of Cuban everyday life: the posed dockworker, the striding school boy. They look out at us with their body language that speaks volumes about the human condition; which without saying a word tells us everything.
