"Cuba Ahora: A Photographic Journey"

by Jeannette Ferrary

 

NOW IN ITS LAST WEEK!
Peninsula Ballet Theatre
1880 South Grant Street in San Mateo


Artist's Statement:

Although I have long been interested in street photography, I feel as if, until I went to Cuba, I didn't know what a street was. To walk down a street in Havana is to be dazzled by the buzz and color and vibrancy of life in motion. The street isn't a place that people pass through on their way to something; the street is where they're going. It's arrival, destination, a community center where they enjoy the jostle. People thrive there, they walk together, look at each other, seem to know how to take their time. In Cuba, both in the city and the countryside, I felt like the street was a whole world where I was only a visitor hoping, through my camera, to come away with some of its magic.
