Rose Marie Cromwell – Everything Arrives

This photographic project consists of images made in Cuba during multiple trips to the island over the past several years. My relationship with Cuba is complicated. When there, I feel part of a close community, but, ultimately, am always an outsider. I feel seduced, only to be repelled, only to be seduced again. 

As an attempt to depict these contradictory experiences, I photograph everyday rituals and still lifes that hold personal meaning. Through dramatic lighting and performed gesture, these everyday scenes become mythic images illustrating the depth of my relationship to the space and the people I interact with.
