"Identity and Remembrance: Contemporary Photography in Matanzas, Cuba,"

In this thesis, Abby focuses on seven artists from Matanzas who showed their work at the Havana Biennial as part of the photography collective “Colectivo Arraigo.” These artists' works reflect the value of photography in expressing the relationship between collective memory and cultural identity in Matanzas and the rest of Cuba.
