APR 1 thru MAY 4
Cuban Master Photographer Raúl Corrales Exhibit of Rare Hemingway and Cojimar Images at SALT Gallery
Cuba’s Master Photographer Raúl Corrales is best known for his profound images of the Cuban Revolution. But before the Revolution, Corrales embraced life in the tiny fishing village of Cojimar where Ernest Hemingway wrote of and fished for giant marlin. This rare portfolio of images—“Hemingway in Cuba”—will exhibit during the month of April at SALT Gallery in Key West. The work will be hosted by Saúl Corrales, son of the late photographer, and curated by the renowned critic and historian of Cuba’s photographic arts, Rafael Acosta. A special preview and reception will be held from 6pm-8pm on Saturday, April 1 at SALT Gallery’s 830 Fleming Street location.
“Hemingway in Cuba” reveals a rare portfolio of images Corrales captured of Hemingway and his fisherman friend Anselmo Hernandez, the Cuban fisherman who inspired The Old Man and the Sea. His images offer a sweeping lyricism filled with unusual angles, perspectives, balanced composition, and a sculpture-like feel of light and shadow punctuates the subject with emotion. The SALT Gallery exhibit is a compelling documentary and a rare opportunity for fine art collectors, Cuban history and Hemingway buffs, and photography enthusiasts alike.
Gallery owner Jeffrey Cardenas features a new artist each month at SALT Gallery; Perry’s work will remain on display throughout February. For more information, call 305.896.2980 or visit SALTGalleryKeyWest.com.
