Over de expositie
Mario Marino (1967) is a travel portrait photographer who has been photographing various people in their native lands since 2000. In 2012 he went to Cuba to portray 'regular' people in the city of Havana, such as the lady selling eggs, the boxer, the waiter and the Santeria priestess Jeremina and her cat. Instead of creating distance, he uses his camera to make contact. Mario Marino invites us into the lives of the inhabitants of the Cuban capital. We see their dreams and desires. Marino depicts the city as a 'grande dame'. Sure, she's and elderly, skinny but toned, lady and the marks of an intense life are clearly visible. However, she has not lost her grandeur and style, and she has certainly conquered Mario's heart. After the successful exhibition 'Cuba Mi Amor' in the Afrika Museum (NL) in 2014, Marino's Cuba photographs are now exhibited at Rademakers Gallery.
