This exhibit features photos taken on a photo trip to Havana, Santieras and Trinidad, Cuba. Many people have holidayed in Cuba and returned with standard holiday shots. Instead, in this show I share what I captured of the people and culture of this wonderful country.

By the Lake
Allison Plass, USA
My pictures explore moments of intimacy and vulnerability between my husband and adolescent sons, often while on family vacations in nature. In this time out of time frame, I see their changing bodies, in adolescence and midlife, register so much feeling. And the sculptural quality of their forms remind me of early ideas of classical beauty, and echo stories and struggles of Ancient Greek myth. Their physical interactions too, distilled in a photograph, reveal heightened tensions of closeness that are familiar scenes throughout the history of Western Art, and speak to a resonance I might not otherwise see in daily life or in cultural representations of masculinity. Inspired by art history, psychology and Greek myth, I like to explore these tensions of art and life, past and present, that a photographic moment can hold, and, in the process, present a more complicated picture of boys’ and men’s experience.
