Portrait of Cuba
February 1 - February 8, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

This program is organized and operated by Cuba Cultural Travel, in consultation with, and endorsed by, the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops.

Dive into a rich Cuban experience by exploring the country and people of this previously forbidden island 90 miles south of Miami. This educational program with veteran portrait photographer and long-time visitor to Cuba, Jock McDonald, allows us to delve beneath the tourist veil of the city to better understand this intriguing and complicated country. Through these direct educational exchanges with the Cuban people, the participants will develop a portrait of life in Cuba.

By working closely with the premier photographic organization in Cuba, Fototeca de Cuba and its Director Nelson Ramírez, this program allows its U.S. participants the opportunity to meet the Cuban people face-to-face in their work and home environments. Two English-speaking Cubans who live in Havana act as your local guides and translators for this program. Each day two small groups venture out into the streets of Havana and its surrounding countryside to interact with Cubans from all walks of life and explore these areas. Jock alternates between both groups each day.

Throughout the week, the participants visit unique areas in and around Havana, such as the ciudadelas (little cities) of Old Havana, Centro, Malecón, Monte, Cayo Huseo, Barrio Chino, Vedado, Miramar, Cojimar, and Guanabacoa, discovering its remarkable people, natural light and colorful surroundings. Against these stunning backdrops and insightful conversations with everyday Cubans living and working in Havana, a true portrait of Cuba emerges.

Includes roundtrip airfare from Miami to Havana, double accommodations for seven nights in Havana (single supplement add $700), breakfast daily plus two group dinners, airport transfers, and all visas and licenses. A $45 application fee will also be charged. Airfare to Miami and hotel accommodations in Miami are not included. Enrollment: 12 to 14 participants.
