Raul Canibano: Storyteller Photography Exhibit
First solo exhibition in the Western United States by the internationally acclaimed Cuban photographer
Krause Center for Innovation (KCI) Gallery
Admission is free; parking is $3.

Foothill College presents Raúl Cañibano: Storyteller, the first solo exhibition in the Western United States by the internationally acclaimed Cuban photographer, Jan. 21–March 11 in the KCI Gallery at Foothill College. Admission is free; parking is $3.

Based in Havana, Cañibano uses the camera to narrate the story of his country, its people and their struggles in the post-revolution era. Through his series, Cañibano’s images tell the story of everyday Cubans in the city (Chronicles of the City) and in the countryside (Guajira’s Land), and confront the loneliness and abandonment of aging in Cuba (Sunset). 

Foothill Photography Instructor and exhibit curator Ron Herman will discuss Cañibano's photographs during a lunchtime gallery talk Wednesday, March 4, from noon to 1 p.m. at the KCI Gallery.

Raúl Cañibano (b. 1961, Havana) was trained as a welding technician and was working in civic aviation when his interest in photography first emerged. It was while walking around Old Havana in 1991, that he saw an exhibit by Cuban photographer Alfredo Sarabia, known for working in the style of magical realism. “When I saw Sarabia’s images, I was floored,” said Cañibano. “His photos had such an impact on me that within a few days, I gave my notice to my boss and traded the blowtorch for a camera lens. I became determined to learn to be a photographer instead.”

Many of Cañibano’s early documentary photographs were ruined because he was forced to use expired film and chemicals, as they were the only ones available due to a lack of commercial exchange following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the socialist bloc in the beginning of the 1990s. Since photography schools did not exist in Cuba at the time, he taught himself by reading books on the topic and studying the basic rules of composition. He found this method of learning boring, so instead he decided to train his eye by looking at great images by the masters of photography and painting, and this helped him to compose his images.

“His images evoke the classic compositions of European and American photographers from the 1930s, like Walker Evans who also photographed in Havana,” said Ron Herman, photography instructor at Foothill College and curator of the exhibition. "Cañibano’s use of interesting framing devices and layering of subjects throughout the picture plane are reminiscent of Josef Koudelka and Sebastião Salgado. Cañibano has the intuition to know when to click the camera at the exact moment when the image elements are perfectly positioned within the frame. It’s as if he adapted Henri Cartier-Bresson’s 'The Decisive Moment' to fit the intoxicating chaos of Cuba, where a single small space is often utilized for multiple distinctly different purposes. He captures the apex of multiple stories unfolding simultaneously within the same scene, thereby defining 'The Decisive Cuban Moment.' He has observed and learned from the masters, but Cañibano developed a uniquely personal style, one that sets him apart and makes his images easily distinguishable from those of his contemporaries," Herman said.

In an effort to revisit the experiences of his childhood, Cañibano started the series Guajira’s Land in 1999. He returned for months at a time to the rural part of the island where he grew up, living day to day with the farmers and experiencing the same joys and difficulties that they did. His history in the community and familiarity with his subjects rendered his camera invisible which enabled him to capture unguarded moments in the daily lives of these rural farmers. The result is a compassionate point of view. “I believe I am a visual narrator,” says Cañibano, “I am narrating my place and my time in a very personal way. In 1999, he won the Gran Prix in the Cuban National Photography Exhibit for his Guajira’s Land series. “This project has an anthropological element,” he says, “because my intent is to document a way of life and customs that may be lost with the passage of time and change that society is experiencing as it develops.” In 2000, he was one of eleven photographers selected for the exhibition, 50 Years of Cuban Photography, at the Royal National Theatre in London, which showcased the work of the most significant Cuban photographers after the triumph of the revolution. Cañibano resides and works in Havana.

Lunchtime Gallery Talk—Wednesday, March 4, noon to 1 p.m. Curator Ron Herman will discuss the photographs in the exhibition in the gallery. Admission is free; parking is $3.
KCI Gallery—Lower Level, Foothill College, 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills, CA 94022 Gallery Hours: M–F, 8:30 a.m.–6:30 p.m.; Sat, 9 a.m.– 4:30 p.m. Closed Sundays and for holidays on Jan 19 and Feb 13 and 16.

Presented by Foothill Music Theatre & Foothill Theatre Arts Department
Lohman Theatre (Room 8002)
Parking is $3; purchase permit from dispensers in any student lot.

The Foothill College Theatre Arts Department and award-winning Foothill Music Theatre present Sunday in the Park with George Feb. 19–March 8 in the Lohman Theatre at Foothill CollegeTickets ($12–$32) are available for purchase at www.foothill.edu/theatre/tickets.php.

With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and based upon the book by James Lapine, Foothill College Vocal Instructor Milissa Carey teams up with music director Dolores Duran-Cefalu for the Foothill production of Sunday in the Park with George.

One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter Georges Seurat won a Pulitzer Prize for its deeply insightful and highly personal examination of life through art and the artist.

In the days leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatté, Georges Seurat is struggling to make meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover, Dot. Amid the scorn of the artistic community, Seurat's artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes. A century later, Seurat's descendant—named George and also an artist—finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past.

An ensemble of strong singing actors performs this challenging and heartbreaking work about our need to connect to the past, present and future. The ground-breaking work by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, the authors of Into the Woods and Passion, contain some of their most beautiful and stirring work.

Parking Lots 1 and 8 provide the best access to the theatre. Purchase permit for $3 at dispensers in any student lot. Dispensers accept one-dollar bills and quarters.

Lecture
February 25, 2015
10:15 to 11:15 a.m.
Foothill Authors Series: Lalita Tademy
New York Times Bestselling Author Reads
Hearthside Lounge (Room 2313)
Authors Series books are available at the Foothill College Bookstore, and can be purchased at a 20% discount.

The Foothill Authors Series presents Lalita Tademy, author of Citizens Creek: A NovelWednesday, Feb. 25, from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m. in the Hearthside Lounge (Room 2313). Admission is free. Authors Series books are available at the Foothill College Bookstore, and can be purchased at a 20-percent discount. Staff and faculty can earn PGA/PAA credit for attending a Foothill Authors Series session.

Lalita Tademy is the New York Times best-selling author of three historical novels. Her debut, Cane River, was Oprah’s summer Book Pick in 2001, translated into 11 languages, and became San Francisco’s One City, One Book in 2007. Stanford University recently selected Cane River as assigned reading for all incoming freshmen in 2015. Her second novel, Red River, was released to critical acclaim in 2007. Her third novel, Citizens Creek, was published in November, 2014.

Before writing full time, Lalita was vice president and general manager of several high technology companies in Silicon Valley, spending more than a decade running business units within large corporations. Featured in Fortune's "People on the Rise" list, as well as Black Enterprise and Ebony, in 1998 she was named an African-American Innovator in the New Millennium at the Silicon Valley Tech Museum of Innovation. But her own interest in a family's roots, and the ongoing issues of racism and women's empowerment, led her to focus all of her energies on her second career—writing.


She has been featured in People Magazine, O Magazine, More Magazine, Good Housekeeping, The Today Show, The Early Show, CNN, and the Oprah Winfrey Show, and has appeared as a speaker for the Library of Congress and National Book Festival, the California Governor’s Conference for Women, African American Librarians – Black Caucus, Louisiana Library Association, Professional Businesswomen of California, National Association of Principals for Girls, and as a San Francisco Library Laureate.

Born in Berkeley, California, far from her parents’ Southern roots, both her mother and father made sure their household (Louisiana West) maintained a definite non-California edge, including a steady supply of grits, gumbo, cornbread and collard greens, and a stream of other transplanted Southerners eager to share their “back-home” stories. Some version of those tales seem to steal their way into what she writes. She lives in northern California with her husband, Barry Williams.
