    Cuba: Beyond the Romance — David DeMelim | Director's Exhibit

    The Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts presents "Cuba: Beyond the Romance," by David DeMelim, a director's exhibit and fundraiser. All proceeds from sales of work go to supporting the organization.

    "Cuba: Beyond the Romance" features a selection of work from DeMelim's travels in Cuba and presents impressions of island life in a country with its' future perpetually on hold. Produced in both high contrast and continuous tone photographs, the show is a look at urban life and living conditions in Trinidad, Havana, and several other locals in Cuba. The show attempts to convey a sense of everyday life in Cuba, skipping over the romantic notions, focusing instead on the resilience and optimism of the Cuban People.  

    Running concurrently is "Rome: 1970's" by Stephen Brigidi," a solo exhibition that previews a selection of Silver Gelatin prints from Brigidi's book of the same title. Please call or email for more information.
