“In 2014 and also the following year I taught photography at the Center for the Studies of Jose Marti, where I met Cuban friends who introduced me to attitudes, views, and life of the island. The series of photographs are a visual record of my time– during the days of May–and encounters with people and places which seemed significant to me at this specific moment”, states Germany born photographer Dana Mueller. Mueller was born and raised in Thuringia, East Germany until the fall of the Berlin Wall.
She goes on to explain: “Although I grew up in the former East Germany, it was important to me not to see things through the filter of socialism and economic hardship – although only too apparent – but through social and human engagement that was serendipitous and open. I conceived the work in book format from the start and am excited to present it for publication in 2018.”
