Shout-Out is a ViewPoint Guest Solo Exhibition by Philip Joy. The exhibition is a LGBTQ project designed to give voices to the community and provide greater awareness of the lives of people within it. LGBTQ individuals were invited to tell their stories through candid portraits and short pieces of text.
The photographs in the Postcards from Cuba exhibit were taken in March 2014 when the photographer, Kathleen Flanagan, visited Havana, the capital city of Cuba, and Remedios and Caibarien, two small coastal cities in Cuba. The images depict Cuba before the impact of recent major events – the lifting of the 50-year American embargo in December 2014, the election of Donald Trump on November 8, 2016, and the death of Fidel Castro on November 25, 2016. Guided by documentary traditions, the images depict a country in transition as seen with a visitor’s eye and empathy.
