Great photographers have always captured important moments in time and space. The role of photo-journalists has been critical to the recording of historical events, while at the same time, photography inhabits two worlds, that of technology and that of art.
The personal exposition of U.S. photographer Peter Turnley (Indiana, 1955), one of the world’s greats, in the Cuban Art building of the National Fine Arts Museum, eliminates any doubt regarding the classic question: Is photography art?
Every item exhibited stays with viewers, and with Moments of the Human Condition, Turnley has captivated more than 35,000 visitors in Havana. His photos reflect the author’s very own, inquisitive, honest view of dissimilar events which occurred in the more than 90 countries he has visited over the past 40 years.
