Kako Escalona

Havana, Cuba

A boy who once spent his time with maps and encyclopedias and went on to become a guy who justifies with photography his passion for seeing new places. With the philosophy that empathy is more valuable than judgement for a comprehensive understanding of the world, Kako Escalona is a photo documentarian, educator, visual artist, and contributor to independent media in Cuba. Since 2012, he has taught the "Photojournalism and Social Documentary" workshop at University of Arts of Cuba (ISA), University of Havana (UH) and American University of Washington D.C (AU). He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Cinematography from University of Arts of Cuba (ISA).
