A few weeks ago, Scott and I had the chance to take the trip of a lifetime. We spent a week in Cuba with famed photojournalist, Peter Turnley, documenting life in Havana. During our time in Cuba, we had some amazing opportunities to step inside and get a first hand account of their daily activities and speak with the locals, thanks to the help of our guide Oscar. The wonderful thing about this journey was the variety of activities that we were able to participate in. We had the chance to sit on dance rehearsals for the Habana Compás Dance Company, who use Afro-Cuban rhythms and contemporary dance paired with a variety of percussion instruments, as well as the Laura Alonso Dance Academy, ran by the daughter of the grande dame of the Cuban Ballet, Alicia Alonso. From there we were able to visit the classrooms of a local elementary classroom the headed off to photograph amateur boxers training at the Rafael Trejo outdoor gym. One of the highlights of our trip was travelling to the to the home of the son and granddaughter of Raul Corrales, of the leading figures in photographing the Cuba Revolution, and viewed some of his original prints.
