Passage to Cuba: A Visual Journey With Current Travel Guidelines

Please see full event listing for date.

passage to cuba
Accomplished photojournalist Cynthia Carris Alonso will discuss her experiences and her book, Passage to Cuba: An Up-Close Look at the World's Most Colorful Culture. With access few other have had, Alonso has spent 20 years capturing scenes and stories of Cuba and sharing with those who were barred from Its shores. The program captures, with an “insider’s access and a visitor’s sense of wonder” (Jack Crager, senior contributing editor, American Photo), two starkly different worlds contained within this island nation: the luxurious realm where foreigners flock, and the unseen corners where ordinary citizens dwell away from tourists’ eyes. As an American photographer, accredited journalist, and member of a Cuban family by marriage, Alonso enjoyed rare access. She met and fell in love with her husband while in Cuba, and her embrace of his country shines through. She captures not just luxurious beaches and hotels, but the resilience, passion, struggle, and survival of the Cuban people.

Diane Salvo, operations manager for Tauck, will share details on traveling to Cuba. Community partner: Tauck

Cynthia Carris AlonsoCynthia Carris Alonso has been a photographer and photo editor for more than twenty years, working for publications such as Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Business Week and Time.com, and exhibiting her photographs in the United States, Canada and Latin America. Since the early 1990s, Cynthia has traveled regularly to Cuba, photographing the country’s most famous artists, important news events, and the daily life of the people. In 1992, Cynthia met her future husband in Cuba, and today she lives with him and their daughter in New York City.
