About the Book
WELCOME TO MODERN-DAY CUBA: Discover images that stir the mind and stories that touch the soul. These are the fruits of a two-week trek by the author/photographer that spanned the island from east to west. Share a glimpse of modern-day Cuba where time stands still, yet takes its toll.
Through my images, I strive to capture the beauty and moments that enrich our daily lives, wherever life my take us. Most of us go through life rushing from one place to the next, mesmerized by electronic gadgets and not really seeing our world and all its riches. My passion is to reveal the unexpected, to draw the viewer in, and to share what others rush by. From classic Black and White, to modern High Dynamic Range photography, my image incorporates the foundation set by Rochester Institute of Technology, decades of experience, travel, and study of diverse art media and styles. I am grateful to family, teachers, the U.S. Air Force, and most of all, my Lord for providing endless opportunities. I invite you to explore my world.
