(PITTSFIELD, Mass.) – Photographer Sally Eagle presents “Cuba at the Turning Point,” an illustrated talk on her recent trip to the Caribbean island much in the enws of late, at Berkshire Museum on Saturday, April 18, 2015, at 10:30 am. Eagle spent three weeks traveling around Cuba in December 2014, photographing the everyday lives of Cubans in cities like Havana and Santiago de Cuba and in smaller villages like Baracoa and Remedios. She will present a visual journey of the evolution of politics, architecture, culture and society in a fascinating country that is going through yet another historic transition, as relations with the United States warm to their greatest point in a half-century.
Sally Eagle and her husband Dan Mead have been traveling the world and taking extraordinary photographs since the late 1970s. They have a store of anecdotal tales of their extensive travels, and when accompanied by their magnificent photographs, they provide a unique perspective for those curious about the world around them. Based in Great Barrington, their mission is to provide high-impact visual images of wildlife, landscapes, and cultures around the world to students throughout the Northeast. They exhibit their images to encourage a dialogue, whether about photography, the environment, or cultures around the globe.
