Take a walk through the streets of Cuba-the Cuba the Castro brothers do not want you to see. Cuba is both a country of architectural and natural beauty and a country in ruins. It is a country of the weary and a country of warm and engaging people. It is a place where tastes and music heighten the senses, while crumbling buildings and thin faces inspire great sadness.
This photo documentary shares the story of the Cuban people through the intimate portraits taken by travel photographer Joanna Biondolillo just before the United States established normalized relations with Cuba. It shares the truth about life in Cuba today.
This work will be on exhibit at the Saul Alexander Gallery located in the Charleston County Public Library at 68 Calhoun Street from May 2 – May 31, 2016.
Biondolillo resides on Johns Island and has been a travel and landscape photographer for more than twenty years. More of her work can be seen at
