"My intent was to document a way of life that could fade as the years pass and the changes that are taking place as society develops. What I wished to accomplish was to capture the nobility, familiarity, and kindness of the Cuban farmer."
Raúl Cañibano (b. 1961, Cuba) lives and works in Havana. His first solo exhibition, Lonely Hunter, took place in 1993 at the Fototeca de Cuba in Havana. Since then his photographs have been exhibited internationally in Mexico, Canada, Brazil, the US, Spain, Greece, Italy, Belgium, and Japan. In 1999 he won the Grand Prix in the Cuban National Photography Exhibit for his project on the life of rural workers, Tierra Guajira. He was one of eleven photographers selected for the Cuba, Si! retrospective of 50 years of Cuban photography at the Royal National Theatre in London in 2000. His work is part of the International Center of Photography's collection in New York.
