Branson Quenzer and Juan Suárez

North Korea and Cuba: Stagnation and Flux

February 20–April 3

This exhibit features works by Branson Quenzer and Juan Suárez. Quenzer recently visited North Korea and photographed there in his inimitable style. Suárez from Cuba balances several occupations including photographer/taxi driver which offers him perspectives of life in Havana. Two diverse cultures — one great exhibit.

Suárez’s intimate views of Havana and Quenzer’s inimitable photographic style offer viewers unique perspectives of these societies. The images are presented without titles and are available for purchase.

About Branson Quenzer

For more than a decade, Quenzer has chased bygone eras in a vastly changing Chinese landscape, getting a final glimpse of the simple ways of the peasants and the countryside’s of northeast China before the economic boom sweeps them away. Beyond northeast China, Quenzer also spends an inordinate amount of time travelling without a destination, rather a general direction guided by instinct. He has a master’s degree in economics giving him a concept of seeing the world through a system of interlinking processes and changes which he explores in his photography and art. He is originally from New Mexico.”

Quenzer has written numerous photo tips on the Digital Photography School site based on his extensive traveling experiences.

About Juan Suárez

Juan Suárez (born in Havana in1971) is a photographer, engineer, and private taxi driver. He studied electronic engineering at a military institute and graduated in 1996. After leaving the army, he became a private taxi driver to make a living. It was his father who first got interested in photography, but after reading some books, photography became also Juan’s passion.
In 2009, he took part in his first photography contest at www.cubainformacion.com and won. He is not interested in studio photos, but in showing what happens on the Cuban streets. By the end of 2013, he joined www.Havanatimes.org as a photographer. Now he also works for www.Diariodecuba.com.

In 2015, he took part in his second photography contest, organized by the US Embassy under the title Lazos (Ties). The topic was the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States. Juan was awarded with an honorable mention.”

Quenzer met Suárez during his visit to Cuba last year. It was the former’s idea to create a joint exhibition of images from these countries where photography can be forbidden. North Korea is closed to most outsiders. Since Quenzer resides much of the time in northeastern China, and is fluent in languages, he found a way to enter adjacent North Korea, one of the most restricted and controlled countries on earth, yet in the news almost daily.

Cuba, after years of restrictions, has recently had warmer political and economic relations with the USA. In both countries, the stagnation of decades under totalitarian rule is evident. Both are in flux.
