About the Book
Cuba, Forbidden Fruit of the Caribbean: Cuba remains a mystery (especially for Americans). After spending a few weeks traveling the island I came away with a much better understanding of what Cuba is really about: its people, its land, its culture and its politics. It is a photographer’s paradise, the blending of the new, the old and the older. I just had to see it before it all changes, and change it will. To get a look at the paradox that is Cuba check out this photographic tribute.
I am an itinerant American expat traveling the world and taking my pictures. Before I got a life I was a commercial banker for thirty years, and a (very) young Marine Corps Sergeant in Vietnam. I’ve been snapping shutters for over sixty years, and finally turned professional in 2009; I created my company Indochine Photography that same year. I left the USA in early 2012 to pursue my lifelong dream of photographing the world, and interacting with its many wonderful and diverse cultures. Shortly after arriving in Yucatan, Mexico, I spent a year as the staff photographer for The Yucatan Times newspaper, and also provided my photographic services to the Kaxil Kiuic Biocultural Reserve and Puuc Jaguar Conservation. Since I’ve been on the road I’ve adopted the philosophy of: Live Simple, Live Cheap, Live Free.
