Cuba: Campo Adentro

August 16, 2008 - January 4, 2009

Sponsored by Mary Lou and Andrew Abruzzese, The Pineville Tavern.

While working on a photographic project in Havana, Cuba, Philadelphia-area photographer Susan S. Bank stumbled upon a group of tobacco farmers who had never been photographed before, who had been growing their own food, getting by without electricity and telephone, and living a life firmly anchored in family, neighbors, their animals, and love of the valley where they live. Using black and white film and a 35mm camera, Bank produced a deeply poetic body of work that depicts these ordinary people who live ‘campo adentro’, or deep within the country.
