In light of the lifting of the Cuban embargo announced last month by Obama and his administration along with the normalized relations between the U.S. and Cuba, we wanted to share some fantastic recent images of the island taken by SVA Faculty Member, Jaime Permuth (Professor, Master of Professional Studies in Digital Photography program), especially since the reforms have made Cuba one of the next travel destinations for many Americans.

In November 2014, Permuth, a Guatemalan, New York-based photographer, was invited to Havana to present his first monograph, Yonkeros, and give an artist's talk at La Fototeca de Cuba for its annual Noviembre Fotogr fico (the Month of Photography Festival), which was sponsored by SVA last year.

What developed from his first-time experience in Cuba was his fascinating series, Untitled (Cuba), which was featured in Guernica magazine. Read the article and see the images HERE!
