Traveling to Cuba is one of the most exciting things I’ve done, and I’m now fortunate to have done that twice. My trips there have both been with Alex Garcia’s Cuba Workshops, an “immersive people-to-people exchange” with a group of photographers who share a passion for travel.
Our trip in 2020 was just before the pandemic, so we’ve been waiting patiently (?) since then to return. This trip in November 2022 was special in so many ways. There were several returning workshop friends and a few new ones, everyone bonded immediately as we spent November 5-13 experiencing the warmth of the Cuban people.
For me, the most difficult thing about the trips to Cuba are editing my pictures down to a point where I can share my experiences with my friends and family. It’s hard to really show the warmth of the people of Cuba and the amazing personalities of the people I traveled with.
I could go on and on here about the people we met, the places we saw, and the laughs we had, but for sharing my images I finally broke it down to a few themes so that I can focus in a little on what I captured saw through the lens.
Take a look around, enjoy just a slice of what I experienced, and if you ever have an opportunity to go to Cuba…do it, do it now.
