Dawn Currie is proud to announce the release of two new books – In Search of the Real Cuba: A Journey from East to West; From Ignorance to Insight and Faces of Cuba. These books provide a glimpse of life in Cuba – where time stands still, yet takes its toll.
They are the fruits of a physically and mentally challenging two-week trek by the author/photographer that spans the island of Cuba from east to west. Dawn brought school and clinic supplies to impoverished areas and left enriched with memories to last a lifetime. In Search of the Real Cuba includes over 300 photos that will stir the mind and stories that touch the soul. Faces of Cuba includes images of the resilient, creative, and generous Cuban people, where they work and live. These works were made possible, in part, from the patrons who purchased her photographs during the solo exhibition and art sale at the Viera Government Center featured in the Florida Today “Spaces” section on March 3, 2012. The books are available on-line at blurb.com.
Through her images, Dawn strives to capture the beauty and moments that enrich our daily lives, wherever life my take us. Most of us go through life rushing from one place to the next, mesmerized by electronic gadgets and not really seeing our world and all its riches. Her passion is to reveal the unexpected, to draw the viewer in, and to share what others rush by. She is also preparing for a solo exhibition at the Gallery of Hope in Vero Beach, FL that opens on October 3, 2012. Her images can also be viewed and purchased at curried.smugmug.com.
