Photographer's Note

So I'm sitting here tonight, looking for another cuba photo to force upon the internet. i found this shot of raul corrales and wasn't sure how to spell his name, so i googled him.
i was deeply saddened to see that he died in april of this year. i had the fantastic pleasure to meet him in his home in cojimar in 2004. what started out as a quick "grip and grin" photo op transpired into a three-hour conversation that i will never forget.
his story about coming from a cigarette ad photographer to documenting the revolution had us at the edge of our collective seats.
i remember asking him if he would critique my photos the next time i came. he told me "i'll do it, but be ready for serious criticism." it actually made me nervous, i just wish i had had the chance for him to do it.
wow.
