"Havana Affair" Opening Reception

In September 2016, photographers Keith Marlowe and Harriet Roberts spent several weeks shooting in Havana, Cuba. Their work is presented in the show, Havana Affair, at the Bushwick Community Darkroom. All of the film was developed at BCD and all prints were made at Borough Photo.

Describing the show, Keith says "All shots in this show were captured on film, ranging from 35mm to 4x5. Using an analog process to document our exploration of Havana seemed fitting for a place still so entrenched in the past, in ways both good and bad.” Using 35mm and 120 film to capture street scenes, and 4x5 to record the beautiful architecture, their photos represent the viability and longevity of both film photography and the city of Havana. Harriet remarked "Cuba is a place of such colour and energy, but separated politically from much of the world and for so long, it is also a country where time has stood still. It seemed in 2016 as if relations with Cuba were set to improve and I hoped to try and document things before the inevitable changes this would bring."

There will be a mojito bar starting at 6 until supplies run out. So come early if you want to partake in refreshing beverages!
