Public Lecture Series with Daryl Hawk

Into the Heart of Cuba

International documentary photographer, Daryl Hawk, will present his latest photo documentary and lecture entitled “Into the Heart of Cuba”. In April of 2016 Mr. Hawk embarked on a long 2700 mile circumnavigation of the entire country of Cuba.

Hawk started his journey in the capital of Havana where the day to day street life and architecture was his main focus. He then made his way to the rural Vinales region which is world renowned for tobacco plantations. From there he continued to head east through the cities of Cinfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Clara, Camaguay, Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa as well as many villages in between. The stunning architecture, colorful cars from the 1950s, remote caves, environmental portraits of people from all walks of life, and dramatic landscapes are all covered in the presentation.

Mr. Hawk was in Cuba to shoot a documentary, and will share his nonstop, day-to-day adventures, experiences, discoveries, and valuable lessons learned on an incredibly spiritual journey. He will discuss his style, philosophy, and various techniques used when photographing subject matter. Equipment, lighting on location, environmental portraits, and travel tips on planning a trip to Cuba will all be covered.

For the past thirty years, Daryl Hawk has explored some of the most remote and isolated places in the world telling stories with his camera. He is a photographer, travel writer, lecturer, and explorer whose articles and photographs often appear in numerous national magazines and publications worldwide. He is a member of the Explorers Club, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and member of the Professional Photographers Association. He has been featured several times on NBC’s “Today Show” and Fox 5 television.

He is also the former host and producer of the television show “The Unconventional Traveler” which featured some of the worlds’ leading explorers, travel photographers and filmmakers sharing their work from various expeditions and documentaries.
