Central to our mission of publishing beautiful photography from Cuba is to showcase the work of non-Cuban photographers who have been there. We invite you to contribute to CubaSeen by submitting photographs in response to each issue’s theme.
Our theme for issue 02 is PERSONAS.
A word shared by both English and Spanish, the definition in each is related, different, and pleasantly complimentary. In Spanish, “persona” is a formal use of the word “person.” In English, “persona” is the aspect of someone’s personality that is presented to or perceived by others. Either interpretation is fertile ground for photography in Cuba, where it’s the welcoming people who infuse the island with it’s true vibrancy. Portraits, candid moments, individuals and groups of people all fit into the theme of PERSONAS. We are interested in images that connect us and give a glimpse into the heart of Cuba through her people.
PERSONAS is open to all photographers with an invitation to interpret the theme both broadly and creatively. We accept all formats, processes, and techniques.
Submission is digital and online only (no emails, please use the Submit images! button below). Submit up to five images for consideration in the Showcased Photographers section of CubaSeen. Showcased Photographers will be credited, published in print and online, and their sites linked in the zine. You retain all copyrights to your images.
Please join us in an enduring, and timely, conversation between artists in the United States and Cuba.
