WORKSHOPS/STUDIOS

WINNER: Visiting the studios and workshops of Cuba is to see and learn so much of the vibrant Cuban culture. This dramatic sculpture really caught my EYE. I tried to show its progression from sketch to sculpture while including Solomon the artist himself in the background of his workshop in Matanzas. His diverse works have been shown worldwide from painting to sculpting to ceramics. All very colorful.  Linda Klipp, USA.

TEXTURES

0028

WINNER: I took this photo in Havana Vieja. I remember being almost alone in the street, it was very early in the morning. This guy was so focused on his work, and once he noticed me he looked at me like I was a freak taking so many photos of puddles. I guess he had no idea that he was a major part of the shot.  Adar Hay, Israel

Special Mention: Benjamin Bruce, USA

STREET VENDORS

001109

WINNER: This is a typical scene from the Parrandas of Remedios, Villa Clara, annual fiesta where in a small village foreign visitors, domestic tourists, relatives, friends of Cuba and local residents join together to create massive and chaotic scenes but always surrounded by joy. Everything comes together simultaneously.  Orlando García, Cuba
