Steve Anchell— 2016 Workshop in CUBA
Join Steve for a special experience photographing the rural and colonial culture found outside Havana. During Spring Break he will take a special excursion to the French settler’s port of Cienfuegos to the colonial grandeur of Trinidad and Santa Clara.
Founded in 1819 by the French, Cienfuegos is a calm and inviting port town known as La Perla del Sur (the Southern Pearl). The legendary Cuban musician Beny Moré is from Cienfuegos Province. You’ll spend an afternoon and night for a glimpse into life in a not-so-touristy town.
Trinidad is one of the finest colonial towns in the Americas with cobblestone streets, pastel-colored 18th and 19th-century houses, palaces, and plazas. Magically frozen in time the city has streets that are still populated by horse-drawn carts. Old folk still crouch by windows with elegant wrought-iron grilles, to peer out at passerby.
While Che Guevara was not born in Santa Clara (he is from Argentina), the town has made itself famous as a center honoring his memory. We will visit the monumental Che Memorial on our way into town and then spend a few hours having lunch and looking around.
