"These beautiful photographs bring back many memories of Cuba--my people, my childhood, and so many beautiful moments that passed growing up in my beloved land."—Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Dodgers all-star outfielder

Byron’s images capture:
First the people: who are as beautiful as the ocean
Then the music: which we hear even without speakers
And always the love: as warming as the sun-kissed beaches
Cuba: Yes, Cuba . . . Yes, Cuba
—Nikki Giovanni, poet
