El Muro: The Wall by Eduardo Hernández Santos

Regular price $ 45.00

El muro by Eduardo Hernández Santos is ten triptych photographs documenting the Cuban LGBTQ community. Eduardo Hernández Santos made these portraits of queer people in the summer of 2005 at Havana's seafront wall. Working only at night, Hernández developed his film with expired chemicals and printed his images on outdated photo paper. His darkroom was his bedroom. Once Hernández made his prints, he used transfer lettering to literally press onto his images the words of the late gay Cuban poet and playwright, Virgilio Piñera. El muro by Eduardo Hernández Santos is ten offset triptych photographs and two bilingual essays by the artist and by Cuban ethnographer Abel Sierra.
