Daily life in Cuba on display in Karaköy
An exhibition titled “Cuba, 2013-2016,” organized by the Turkish-Cuban Business Council for the benefit of Parıltı Charity Association, is on display at Global Karaköy, the exhibition venue of Global Investment Holding.
The exhibition displays 97 photos taken by the Photography Travelers Group for four years between 2013 and 2016. The revenue from the exhibition will be donated to the Parıltı Charity Association for Sightless Children.
Viewers of the exhibition will be able to see daily life on the streets of Cuba.
Niko Guido, the founder of the Photography Travelers Group, said they organized six trips to Cuba over four years and witnessed the change in the country through time.
“Cuba has a different place in our hearts. We have visited Cuba many times. Interest in Cuba is also increasing among Turkish people. If we can lead more people to see Cuba, it would make us very happy,” said Gökhan Özer, Secretary General of Global Investment Holding.
Cubans through eyes of Turks
Özer said the photos in the exhibition actually showed Cuba through the eyes of 97 Turkish people, adding that the project was a wonderful way to highlight the friendship between the two countries.
“What people want to see in Cuba the most is not buildings or cars but people. They feel close to each other when Turkish and Cuban people come together,” Özer said.
The exhibition opened on March 28 at a ceremony with the participation of the Cuban Ambassador to Ankara, Luis Alberto Amoros Nunez. It will continue through the end of April.
