Good news this morning: my summer artist residency application in Havana, Cuba was ✨ACCEPTED✨! I will be spending the first half of July working on a photo project that has been simmering on the back burners of my mind for the last 3 years since my mother passed. I want to develop a series of photographs and text for a photo book about identity, place, and loss and I’m looking forward to immersing myself in work and the motherland.
I’m finally doing it, I’m visiting my motherland! Corey & I booked our tickets to Cuba for mid-November and I’ll be shooting photos along the way for a photo essay feature on CheapAir.com‘s travel blog! I couldn’t think of anything I’d rather do more than document my first-time in Cuba and share it with people who also are eager to discover more about this beautiful and isolated place.
