Cuba 50 Years Under the Revolution

Fearrington Artist, Pac McLaurin likes pictures, stories, and pictures that tell stories. “I think any decent photograph tells us at least a fragment of a story. I am especially interested in the concept of place and a sense of place.”  On his website, Pac tells of his interest in “the history of photography, really history in general as reflected in photography.”

His upcoming exhibit, Cuba 50 Years Under the Revolution is story telling at its best, an intermix of time and place. History revealed through a fascinating display of black and white diptychs comparing 1963 Cuba with more recent work - photos by Tito Alvarez 1962 and Pac McLaurin 2012.  

The opening reception is Friday, August 21, 2015 from 6-9pm at Through This Lens in Durham. The show runs through September 13, 2015. Dr. McLaurin will speak about his work at 2pm on the closing date of Sunday, September 13th.

Through This Lens is located at 303 E. Chapel Hill Street, Durham, NC 27701. Phone: 919-687.0250. Website:
