Dallas Center for Photography Speaker Series: 50 Trips to Cuba
In over 50 visits to Cuba, Jennifer Spelman has been allowed to set complicated politics aside and instead develop friendships. Time spent with coconut farmers, ballerinas, fishermen and musicians have shaped her understanding that to be Cuban is to laugh, love and live deeply. Road trips across the island in wheezing 56 Chevy’s have taught Jennifer that Cuban’s greet adversity with ingenuity and patience. She’s grateful to call some of Havana’s best photographers and most dynamic storytellers dear friends.
In this evening lecture, she will show a wide range of work and share stories about her time in Cuba and how it has influenced the way she sees. This event is co-hosted with Texas Photographic Society and sponsored by Frame Destination.
