Ledyard Gallery:

                                        Under a Red Sky
                                                    Under a Red Sky by Violetta Faulkner

Under a Red Sky by Violetta Faulkner

Saturday, May 30 through Wednesday, July 29

Opening Reception: Sunday, May 31 from 2-4p.m.

The photographer writes: In April 2014, I traveled to Cuba with my husband on an educational tour, which, at that time, was the only way Americans could travel there. The tour was very controlled, and we were closely watched to keep us from wandering outside of the group.

It was an emotional journey for me. Living the first 19 years of my life in communist Poland, I am very familiar with what I saw in Cuba. I often found myself moved to tears seeing Cubans' economic struggles and the underlying oppression of their government, was in evidence everywhere and permeated every day.

The tour guides appeared genuine about sharing information, but really, they were careful about what they gave out.  As we found out, the guides went through an extensive training and were carefully selected for the job.

I saw a very beautiful country, proud and resourceful people who love their music and can’t help dancing to it.
I invite you to look at the Cuba I brought back with me in my photographs.  Many were taken in a hurry (about 30% from a moving bus).

May the magnificent country and culture of Cuba find freedom at last!
