¡Viva Cuba!

Photographs on exhibition at Big Town Gallery in Rochester, Vermont. From a newspaper article by Nicola Smith (Valley News, May 14, 2015):

“Beahan shot a bakery, its exterior wall painted with a fading mural of Che, and his fellow revolutionary Camilo Cienfuegos, who died in a plane crash in 1959. It’s a subtle metaphor for the way past and present are so inextricably linked in Cuba — or at least in the Cuba depicted in these photographs. You can’t get away from history: It taps on your shoulder, glances at you from around a corner, and, on occasion, comes too close for comfort.”
