Conrad Gees: Havana On The Cusp

Share Button


Baldwin Hill Art & Framing has an exciting exhibit planned for April/May!

Local photographer and Baldwin Hill employee Conrad Gees recently took a trip to Havana, Cuba and came back with a treasure trove of photos and stories. Havana today is a city in transition: after decades of pure communist rule, small seedlings of private enterprise are starting to blossom.  Parts of the city, crumbling for years, are very slowly starting to be rebuilt.  The promise of normal relations with the United States foreshadows bigger changes to come.

Throughout all this, the people of Havana have to live their daily lives while navigating the shifting landscape of society.  Conrad’s photos tell the story of this transition in vivid detail.  Each photo has a story, which he will gladly regale you with at our reception on April 18!

This exhibit runs through May 5, 2015.
