Cuba y Cubans
An award-winning photobook and solo exhibition by Juan Luis Garcia
"The exhibition is a dichotomy; it is ordinary but extraordinary. In this collection of portraits, Garcia brings back to the states what he saw in Cuba back in 2009. He grants us the privilege of seeing Cubans in their home country, in the most honest way possible, unaltered by any sort of distortions. This is exactly his theme: honesty. The portraits display the honest truth of the lives of Cubans. From cigar rollers, children playing, sex workers and farmers, his portraits capture the subjects in their daily lives, in their most natural state."

Face Value: Mirror Portraits
A multimedia portrait series with 500 participants. Each participant looked at themselves through a 2-way mirror as they reflected on what they saw.
The series has not been published as a complete exhibition or book. It received acclaim and press during the production process but was put on hiatus for personal reasons. If you're interested in collaborating with me to exhibit the work please contact me.
