Cuba 2014 by Fred Kurtz

Traveling to exotic destinations is always a fascinating experience, and the small Caribbean island of Cuba is no exception. Explorer Fred Kurtz joined Natural Exposures on their recent 2014 Cuba Photography Tour and was immensely inspired by the people, culture, architecture, history, and overall ambiance that Cuba had to offer. Fred has compiled some of his best photographs from the trip to create a self-published blurb book, Cuba 2014. Cuban architecture and old classic cars are brought to life in vibrant color and composition, and hIs portraits reveal the individual charm and character of the local population; Fred’s collection of photographs give us wonderful insight to life in Cuba and convey the heart of the Cuban people. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photographs with us Fred. Many will never get to experience this magical place firsthand, and we know they will enjoy the visual memento that you have provided for many years to come 🙂

“We were promised that this would be a unique trip like no other we have experienced and that statement proved to be totally correct.  This trip proved to be much more than a photography adventure – and yes it was that too. Once you visit Cuba, your life will change forever. The Cuban people are some of the nicest people I have come across during my travels. After visiting Cuba, it is very apparent that the embargo that the United States places on Cuba is outdated and just hurts the Cuban people and serves no purpose. One look into the eyes of a cute little school age child in Cuba is enough to convince me they deserve better from both the Cuban and American governments. Cuba is a wonderful place to visit and I am so glad I went with Dan and Tanya on their very first Cuba visit too.”

“To travel to Cuba today is to meet conundrums of high-spirited skepticism and ardor, and emotional extremes of poignancy and laughter, that are like nothing else on Earth…You learn almost too much when you go to Cuba…Go now, before the Golden Arches appear.”
– Pico Iyer, Travel Essayist and Novelist
