Jim Cline, Featured Speaker, August 2005 Meeting

Join award winning professional travel photographer Jim Cline on a journey through the fascinating and beautiful Caribbean island nation of Cuba.

Jim’s wanderlust and search for compelling images has brought him to 30 countries around the globe, but his area of special interest is in the countries of Latin America. He especially enjoys exploring less-traveled areas, photographing the indigenous peoples and traditional cultures found in developing nations. His work has been displayed in galleries and the San Diego History Museum, and published in books, magazines, newspapers, and CD covers. Jim also leads photo tours to locations in Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, and India.

Jim’s presentation features his travels on several trips to Cuba. We will visit the homes of the local people and get a glimpse of their daily lives in the western hemisphere’s only communist country.

The journey begins in Havana, Cuba’s capital and one of the oldest cities in the Americas; and seemingly frozen in time in 1959, the year of the revolution. We then travel across the whole island ending up in the eastern tip of the island in the old colonial town of Baracoa. Along the way we visit historic colonial towns such as Trinidad and Santiago, tropical Caribbean beaches, and pristine natural wonders. And everywhere we visit we are befriended by the gregarious local people. Finally we end up in Cuba’s famous tobacco region of Vinales, where we visit the homes of tobacco farmers and smoke cigars and drink the local rum with them.
