Cuba Rising

“Cuba is a place filled with more questions than answers. One person decries the government while the next praises it. The upside and downside of socialism are in your face. Yet the human spirit still shines. The people are intelligent, welcoming and hopeful. As American tourists now flock to this island nation, it’s important to remember this time-warp culture exists only because of the price its people paid.” –Las Vegas photographer Erik Kabik, on his collection of images and impressions from his recent trip to Cuba
