Continuing Education Digital Photography Certificate student Jean Solar recently returned from a photography trip to Cuba. He is currently working on several projects related to documentary and street photography. These works below are part of this new body of work by the artist.


#ContraRevolucion


The internal politics established by the regime of the revolution and the economic embargo by the United States of America have led to an evident stagnation in the development of Cuba. The lack of basic elements in health, education, construction and technology are notorious when walking the streets of Havana. Nevertheless, the gradual opening of relations is a sign of hope for better times for the new generation of Cubans.


The artistic project #Cuba #ContraRevolucion shows us life in Havana after 56 years of revolution and embargo. It is a photographic record realized in long hours of walking the streets of the city, in casual meetings or long talks with the old ones of Cuba, those of the revolution. #Cuba


#ContraRevolucion includes images in digital and analog format, some of them as experimental photography.


About Jean Solar


Jean Solar is a Chilean artist-photographer based in Philadelphia. He is an electronic engineer, who worked mainly on telecommunication projects in Santiago, Chile. He moved to Vancouver, Canada in 2013, and began to study art and photography at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. He also taught several art workshops at the UBC Learning Exchange, a community organization in Vancouver downtown.


In 2015, he moved to Philadelphia, where he is pursuing a Digital Photography Certificate at The University of the Arts. As well, he is attending multiple art institutions in Philadelphia, including Fleisher Arts Memorial, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, and Philadelphia Photo League.


Jean's earlier work shows us urban architecture and nature in cities. Recently, his photography is a record of the urban life, cultural diversity, and the human condition. Most of his pictures are in black and white to present strong images and to emphasize emotion; in addition, he is also exploring traditional and alternative photographic processes.
