Faculty photo selected for International Photo Contest

Dr. S. L. Alexander's photo, Habana Viejo, was exhibited in the Fourth Juried Loyola International Photo Contest in the Monroe Library Living Room. The exhibit was open from March 12-29, 2010.

The first photo was in the exhibit in hard copy and the second was a part of the online exhibit. They selected two of the four Alexander submitted as a photo essay.

Selection 1

Habana Viejo 6(2)jpg copyright S.L. Alexander, 2009

Having worked as a journalist in my hometown of Miami, I
always wanted to visit Cuba, so on the Silver Anniversary of
The Triumph of the Revolution, I found a Canadian tour,
joined two dozen fellow travelers in Toronto, and prepared
to party like it was 1959.


Selection 2

Cuba, Si 30F cuba.jpg, copyright S.L. Alexander, 2009

The poincianas and frangiapani, guavas and coconuts, heat
and humidity, all were familiar--and although some of the
painfully decent Canadians and Mid-Westerners in the group
seemed unaccustomed to decrepit conditions, I felt right at
home in Cuba, the New Orleans sister banana republic.
