Meet famed photographer Brent Winebrenner, a traveler and filmmaker with experience in 70 countries. He was a faculty member at the Brooks Institute of Photography and the principle photographer for the richly illustrated coffee table book “Splendor of Cuba” – 450 Years of Architecture and Interiors”. The photographs, shot exclusively for this book, show examples in each area of the island-from the interiors and exteriors in Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Santa Clara, Cienfuegos, and Pinar del Rio to close-up details of courtyards, balconies, galleries, balustrades, grilles, and louvered doors in Trinidad, Matanzas, and Holguin. One featured home is Finca Vigia (“Lookout House”), the former residence of Ernest Hemingway.
