Printmakers at Taller Experimental de Gráfica de La Habana

Printmaker - Havana - 2013

On Friday, January 25, 2013, we visited the Taller Experimental de Gráfica de La Habana and watched several graphic artists working on their projects. This printmaker was just getting ready to pull a print as we arrived – and I was able to snap a sequence of shots that culminated in this one of him pulling the print off the press and holding it up for us to see. I decided to post-process it as a monochrome image – to focus the viewer’s eye on him and the print.

Here’s another image – of another print maker adjusting one of his images before pulling another print. The texture of this image is powerful – his look, the tattoos, the hair on his arms and the needle in his hand. It’s one of my favorite images from this particular day in Havana!
