Is it true? Two photos of the month? Wait. That's not Cuba.
Photo: Alain Gutiérrez

Well, technically, this is the photo that we missed from April; it was supposed to represent National Poetry Month. Not only did we miss the ball on this one, but you’ll probably notice that this picture is definitely not from Cuba.

What is from Cuba though is Alain Gutiérrez, the photographer who took this shot; a professional photographer, photojournalist, artist and food blogger. Born and raised in Havana, Gutiérrez spent nearly 18 years in Cuba working as a photojournalist for various media entities, photographing high-profile cultural and social events like the visits of President Barack Obama and Pope Francis, The Rolling Stones concert, and Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel runway show. He was also selected by the U.S. Embassy to be the official photographer at the re-opening ceremony with Secretary of State John Kerry.

Now based in the Washington, DC area, Alain leads tours to the island and works as a freelance photographer and videographer. We’re big fans of Alain’s work and of him in general so when it comes to posting a photo a little late (which was our fault anyway)… eh, it’s cool.

Great shot Alain.

Hola todo el mundo. Sometimes our stories are sourced from multiple people on our team. Or, we like to keep you guessing... You know... anonymous. And, for that, soy el escritora; "El Equipo." We exist to amplify the voices of writers, photographers, and content creators in the space between the United States and Cuba, and we also feature stories from Puerto Rico, Latin America, and the Latinx community in the US. Topics of interest are personality-driven and include pop culture and music, featured current events, climate and the environment, and travel and tastemakers. Oh, and of course we're always 100% independent. No governments, businesses or other influencing factors play a role in our work.
