Cuba is calling again! It’s time for a new photo workshop in this warm, lush and picturesque Caribbean island. My good friend and colleague Sven Creutzmann – and myself – are inviting photographers from all over the world to another astounding experience in Cuba. During eight days we will take you through a few of the most scenic and charming areas of one of the most special places you can imagine.
If you have never set foot on Cuba, you will be amazed about this country that is so different than anything else on Earth. No doubt for better and worse. But the fact remains that for a photographer Cuba is nothing less than an earthly paradise – whatever else one may think about this paradox of a nation. First of all it is the warm, passionate and welcoming people of Cuba. But it is so much more than that. It’s also the colours, the startling light, the cultural diversity, the striking decay that is imminent everywhere, the colonial heritage, the African influence, the strange mixture of the country’s religions, the contradiction between a society stuck in the 50’s and trying to catch up with a contemporary way of living; and the country’s energy and sensuality.
The photo workshop will take place from October 26th to November 2nd 2014. We start out with a couple of days exploring Havana, the bustling capital, and then head south to Trinidad, maybe one of the most beautiful towns on the Caribbean island where we will touch base for the rest of the time. Here Sven and I will give lectures, guidance and of course picture critique every day, but most importantly you will be out photographing this spellbinding scenery, society and its people.
