About this activity

This experience offers the possibility of participating in a full day of the Photo Workshop of the Havana's Creative Photography School that will be taught during that week. In general this Workshop lasts 5 days
Undoubtedly, Havana is the most photographed city in Cuba, but also the most filmed, the most radiated, on which most has been written. Havana is a synthesis of Cuban culture. In the different spaces there is a culture very typical of our people, of the neighborhoods, of the streets. We have the necessary diversity to be remarkably photogenic, totally spontaneous and captivating.
This workshop proposes submerging in Havana neighborhoods extremely interesting for their histories, heritage values and socio-cultural news. Unique opportunity to create images letting yourself be inspired by the past and the present.

• Conferences specialized in documentary technique,
