Life in Cuba: Old Havana before the Hurricanes  
A stunning exhibition of original photographs from Mr. Benowitz’s recent trip to Cuba, reflecting on the culture, poverty, occupations and history of this island nation’s people under Castro's rule, and the barrios and neighborhoods of Old Havana. The Exhibit features photographs taken shortly before Hurricanes Gustav and Ike wreaked their havoc on the people of Cuba, and Benowitz’s pre-storm photographs beautifully preserve the impoverished state of this beautiful little island on film.
