Photographs of Cuba, 1963-1964


August 20, 2010 – December 12, 2010
Sponsor(s): Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library
Artist(s): Deena Stryker

Deena Stryker's photographs offer a window onto an unsettled time in the early years of the Cuban Revolution, after the Missile Crisis and before Che's departure for the Congo, when Fidel Castro was solidifying his control over the revolutionary government. The exhibit includes contemporary 11x14 gelatin silver prints and smaller proof prints made by Cuban photographer Alberto Korda who assisted Stryker during her visit to the island.


This exhibition was sponsored in part by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
