  • La Galería 85 West Newton Street Boston, MA, 02118 United States (map)

Take a look at the world through photographers Pablo Bordon’s and Sebastian Leal’s eyes as they capture abstract moments hidden in the everyday life of Havana, Cuba and New York City.

In collaboration with the Galería Cubana, their upcoming exhibit is entitled Faroleando, a word meaning a playful way of passing time or meandering in Cuba. Bordon wanders the streets of a supposedly dated Havana and zooms in on the urban architecture to bring us up to date on the contemporary Cuba we have been missing for over 50 years. Leal specializes in incorporating reflections by capturing images in storefront windows and even puddles; his photographs highlight the beautiful mysteries hidden right in front of your nose in a bustling city.

Don’t miss this chance to meet one of the artists, Sebastian Leal, while enjoying some innovative photography and refreshments. Register to attend here.

The opening reception will take place on September 9 from 6 to 8PM, and will run until October 7, when the exhibit will be open one last time to the public during the Henry Cole concert.
