The leaves of an over hanging tree reflecting off the front window of a polished green car lure the eye to enter another world through a photograph. Michal McClure an explorer of the business world, but lover of the outside world was captured by his passion of seeing culture, nature and people through a colorful lens. McClure traveled to Cuba in 2011 to seize the promising reality of the changing environment in Cuba, after the Socialist government of Fidel Castro. This transformation is captivated in the shutter snap and now is presenting the life abroad to interested eyes. Seeing how other countries progress is a first hand experience, but McClure a talented photographer detains the genuine experience with his trained eyed. He communicates the faith Cubans have in their hearts and paintbrushes as he exhibits spirit and the daily commute. The open reception includes wine, food and great conversation kicking off the 25 piece series that is sure to transport the viewer into another time and place. [JR]
