THE LIGHT IN CUBAN EYES
The Madeleine P. Plonsker Collection
of Contemporary Cuban Photography
The story of The Light in Cuban Eyes begins in 2002, when Madeleine P. Plonsker embarked on a cultural exchange trip to Cuba. Plonsker, a Chicago-based collector of twentieth-century masterworks on paper, thought she might collect a few souvenirs. She did not know the compelling worksshe uncovered would expand to encompass the revelatory passage of a society in transition. The Light in Cuban Eyes encapsulates this inspired vision.
