What you'll do

After crossing the Havana´s bay, we´ll visit the Regla town, the land of the Yemaya Orisha in Cuba. Together we will know about the secrets of this nice place. At the same time we will do a photographic documentary about this locality. This place is the smallest municipality of Cuba and at the same time, Regla has one of the higher population in the island. The experience will start at the Regla's terminal of Ferries where we will take a ferry for crossing the Havana's bay. After we will be visiting the popular church of Regla. We´ll walk on the town´s streets knowing the Regla´s history, its people, its traditions, its culture. At the same time, we´ll take many photos for creating a photographic documentary about Regla. You can use your photographic camera or your smartphone, photographic. In the end of the experience, we´ll go to my home where will talk about photography and Cuba´s reality while enjoy a good Cuban drink and some snacks.

I studied pedagogy in a Cuba university. Always I have had interested in sociologic, antropologic, cultural, and politic themes. I love to meet people from different places and knowing their culture. Ten years ago I stated to practice the photography. Currently I work like a assistant professor in a Cuba university where I teach this important tool to architecture students. In 2017 I got the photographic scholarship "Raul Corrales", the most important scholarship that the Cuban state gives to photgraphers. The same year, I got to enter among the best works in the WIN Photo Competition (Top Ten). In 2016 I obtained a special mention in the Havana Times´photo competition of the digital magazine Havana Times.

Where you'll be

We meet at the terminal of Regla´s launches (La lanchita) for taking one of them and crossing the historic bay of Havana for visiting the Regla neighborhood. There we´ll visit the Regla Virgin´s Church, one of the most famous sanctuary in Cuba. Right there, we could share with religious people (santeros fundamentally) and could get their religious services if we want. Also we´ll visit the most ancient town zone founded during the Spain presence in Cuba. We´ll go to the downtown for seeing the dynamic of the daily life in Regla and enjoy its cultural mix. We´ll go to the Lenin´s hill where the first monument to the communist leader was built beyond of Russia in 1924. Finally we´ll visit my house in a quiet neighborhood, will review the photos taken while have a good drink and some snacks.
