Thursday Thoughts with SIUE on October 2
Cuba: Through the Lens of the Camera
Edwardsville, IL – On Thursday, October 2, from 7:00-8:00pm, C. Otis Sweezey, Emeritus Professor of Theater and Dance and David Thompson, Professional Photographer will present Cuba: Through the Lens of the Camera.
During the spring of 2014, SIUE sponsored a Photographers’ Tour of Cuba. The group of twenty-four visited many sites in Cuba, including Old Havana, picturesque Pinar del Rio, and the fishing village where Ernest Hemingway wrote The Old Man and the Sea. They say performances at the world famous Tropicana and the Buena Vista Social Club.
It was an experience of a lifetime as they explored Cuba within a photographer’s perspective. Cuba is a world frozen in time with old cars and colonial Spanish fortresses. Visit the sites of Cuba through the photos or tour coordinator C. Otis Sweezey and professional photographer David Thompson. These presentations are in partnership with the SIUE Office of Educational Outreach, with technical equipment provided by the SIUE Meridian Society. They are open to the public.
