The Cuba we’ve come to know is –
“better than any romance better than any thriller more real than a documentary If you’re interested in seeing the Cuba we know, meeting its people, tasting the culture, making images of its heart join us in what might be one of the last two trips we will be allowed to make.

We still have completely legal access for two more trips, but they are filling fast, and the political window is closing.” S

A bit of sad news to start out a Monday morning is that Leah Chase passed away yesterday.
Leah was totally dedicated to the restaurant and the community which she was very much a part of. She was considered a central cultural figure in the politics of New Orleans and the national struggle for civil rights. She was also a major promoter of art. During our conversation Joe mentioned that he had just done a cover story on Syvia’s restaurant in Harlem for American Way Magazine and on the owner Sylvia Woods. The two of them were sisters of a kind. Both trend setters and entrepreneurs in the food/restaurant business and in society. One in Harlem and one in New Orleans. Both women will be missed as they played a vital role in bringing people together.
Our friend photographer Peter B. Kaplan passed away this week. R.I.P. Peter! Peter was a wild and crazy photographer who is best known for his height photography in New York City. He was also a strong advocate of photographer’s rights!
I first met Peter at a New York ASMP meeting and we were friends ever since.
I don’t remember who shot this photo but it was a Stock Market Party and we were all having a really good time.
Actually this is one of the rare occasions that Peter did not have his African Grey Parrot, Kasuku along with him
We will all miss you Peter.

Everybody’s a photographer nowadays but some have been photographers much longer than you! They make their living from it!
This is an assignment I had with a model I worked with several times in the past. He was looking for something different and this is what I came up with. I wanted to depict – attitude, proudness, confidence and strength.
