The story of Cuba through photography

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) For many, Cuba is a bit of a mystery. It’s been politically and economically isolated by the U.S. since the Cuban Revolution in the 1950s. It’s country that continues to fascinate us, and you can see that in an photography exhibit opening August 21 at the Richard App Gallery in Grand Rapids.

“Revolution Evolution” features photography of Jack Kenny and other photographers who captured iconic photos of Cuba. It is a mixture of modern-day photos and photos from the 1960s and 70s. They are all in black and white, and it can be hard to figure out which are old and which are recent.

You can see the exhibit and meet Jack Kenny at the Revolution Evolution Artist Reception on Thursday, August 21. It’s at the Richard App Gallery at 910 Cherry Street SE from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The show and exhibit are free and the work is available for purchase. The book “Cuba” will be available for purchase for $50 and can be signed by Kenny at the artist reception.

Revolution Evolution continues through September 21.
