Jorge V. Gavilondo - Cuban Photography
I was born in 1949 in Chicago, and moved to Havana in 1950, when my Cuban parents decided to return back home. After many years of shooting film as an aficionado, in 2001 I switched to digital photography and started working part time as a professional freelance photographer.
At present, most of my time is used in fine art photography, teaching of digital post processing techniques, and assisting the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops school (Santa Fe, NM) in their Cuba programs.
The site shows work I have done for the last 16 years, mainly in Cuba, in the photographic subjects I favor the most. You can start with the selected images slideshow on your left (or the top, depending on your viewing device), or move directly to the Folders below for: (a) documentary ("street") work done in Havana and other Cuban cities and towns, (b) specific photo projects and essays (Cubans of all Ages, Doors of Cuba, Countryside Soul), (c) nature, -with birds in first place-, (d) dance and ballet, and (e) political themes. The site has also folders that show the work of my two sons, that are part of the Gavilondo Studio.
Prints of different sizes and in a variety of supports can be directly ordered from the website, and will be delivered to your door, worldwide. For questions about non-priced images, photo licensing, on-site assignments, my full bio, and the workshops I teach, please contact me at: email@example.com
I am a member of the Cuban Association of Social Communicators and of the Association of Cuban Writers and Artists (UNEAC).
