Los Sombreritos, Havana, Cuba, 1960

YOU SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION?— The work of late Master Cuban photographer Raúl Corrales is on exhibit until May 4 at SALT Gallery in Key West, featuring a portfolio of images that offer a compelling documentary and a rare opportunity for fine art collectors, Cuban history and Hemingway buffs, and photography enthusiasts alike. Included are images Corrales captured of Hemingway and his Cuban fisherman friend who inspired The Old Man and the Sea, and several from Corrales’ best-known work—the Cuban Revolution. Images like the one pictured here –Los Sombreritos, (The Little Hats), Havana, Cuba, 1960, a signed silver gelatin print of optimistic young rebels wearing white straw hats and holding guns— exude a sweeping lyricism filled with unusual angles, perspectives, balanced composition, and a sculpture-like feel of light and shadow punctuates the subject with emotion. Don’t miss the chance to collect a print from one of the world’s greatest photographers of all times. For more information, call 305.896.2980 or visit SALTGalleryKeyWest.com.
