Going to a photography festival, you can’t get it all. There are to many lectures and exhibitions and things going on. If there is one thing I regret at the Nordic Light festival, it is not trying to find the Cuban exhibition (the exhibitions are all over the town), showing work from seven Cuban photographers and two Americans working in Cuba. Like Raul Cañibano Ercilla (to the left in the picture above) and Pedro Abascal. Both very interesting photographers who for years have been documenting contemporary Cuba.
Too late for me, who was only there two days, but at least I saw some of the cuban work at the lectures. Like the lecture of Adrián Fernández, a young photographer that studies interior portraits and decorative objects, not what you usually expect in photography from Cuba..
Absolutely interesting was also Alejandro Chaskielberg, from Argentina, who has got his own style working with moonlight and a lot of artificial light used outdoors, working all over the world. More photos from Nordic Light on this link.
