A custom-designed photography experience in Cuba

North Island College photography instructor Paul Bailey will lead photography experience in Cuba from Feb. 14 to 25.

Once again North Island College professional photography instructor Paul Bailey will lead a custom-designed photography experience in Cuba from Feb. 14 to 25.

The tour, offered through Langara College’s Continuing Studies travel program, is open to everyone, not just students currently registered in any college courses or programs.

Immerse yourself in the authentic Cuban culture of this historic and resilient country at a time of emerging evolution.

The tour begins in old Havana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and home to the largest collection of remaining Colonial-era and Art Deco architecture. Travel westward to visit the country’s largest eco-community, Las Terrazas, and the fertile farmland of the Vinales Valley, then eastward to the picturesque towns of Cienfueguo, and Trinidad de Cuba.

Tour the nearby forested hilltops of Topes de Collantes in the Escambray Mountains and enjoy the waters of the Rio San Juan.

Along the way, participants will meet and photograph Havana-based ceramist-installation artist, Jose Fuster, visit a family-run pottery studio in Trinidad de Cuba and take a walking and boat tour through the Cueva del Indio near Vinales.

Itineraries, costs and registration are available at www.langara.bc.ca/continuing-studies/programs-and-courses/programs/cuban-photography-tour or by contacting Paul Bailey at 250-334-5051.

A book of this year’s participants’ photographs can be viewed through Paul Bailey’s website at www.paulbaileyphotography.com.
