Wandering in Cuba is a collection of photographs that John Rosenmiller compiled during his numerous journeys throughout Cuba since 2015. His compelling images reveal a raw and gritty side of Cuba that starkly contrasts with the island’s image of 50s cars, cigars and rum. Meet unseen Cubanos who struggle with dignity and perseverance in Havana’s overflowing barrios, make charcoal at night in the hidden countryside, live in church operated homes for the elderly, train in run down boxing clubs, cut sugar cane and compete in local rodeos.
John Rosenmiller is a native New Yorker whose recent documentary film, City of Covid, unmasked the empty New York streets during the March 2020 covid quarantine when New York was the epicenter of the virus. His Covid photograph of Spike Lee bicycling in NYC garnered a widespread Instagram following and was featured by Anderson Cooper on CNN.
